More funny corrections from the paper of record

What's going on with the copy desk over at The New York Times?

An article on Friday about the views of L. Paul Bremer III, the American administrator in Iraq, about the country's future misstated the weight of the bombs that United States forces have dropped recently on sites believed to harbor urban guerrillas. They are 500 pounds each, not 500 tons.

Just for an idea of scale, an M1A1 Abrams tank weighs nearly 70 tons. So the Times had us dropping bombs weighing the equivalent of seven tanks each.

Is there any plane that can even carry that much weight?

For some amount of time today, the CA DOJ's new data website leaked name and addresses of people with CCW permits.

Someone PM'd me with video evidence of it (can't share to protect confidential info).

Here is a reddit thread with discussion. https://www.reddit.com/r/CAguns/comments/vm723i/attorney_general_bonta_releases_new_firearms_data?sort=confidence
