Apologies to Jacoby

Kaus says Jacoby didn't make up the Kerry articles. So, I apologize for this.

It's still a ridiculous issue which is the Globe's problem, not Kerry's, as MWO makes clear, but that doesn't change the fact that it appears I was incorrect.

I've apologized for being wrong about Jacoby, now maybe the Globe will apologize for being wrong about Kerry.

Just wanted to add one more thing - there are so few mentions of Kerry being Irish that it is hard to believe that no one at the Globe was ever corrected for that mistake. The fact that no one ever ran an actual correction is not proof of this. Given the number of times they refer to other Mass. politicians as being Irish, it must have been known.
