Cinnamon investigated the depiction of bookstore Women & Children First in a recent New York Times article that was, in essence, about parenting practices in Andersonville. Accordingly, today's correction to that story won't come as much of a surprise to Gapers readers:

"Because of an editing error, an article on Wednesday about rules for children and parents in restaurants and other businesses misstated the site of an incident in which a woman was asked to stop breast-feeding in a store in Chicago. It was not the Women and Children First bookstore but another business in the neighborhood. The article also misstated the bookstore's policy for children who break rules for story time. Parents are asked to take them away from the reading area; the children are not ejected."
