Arizona Gets The Papal Treatment

If I were the Formerly Gray Lady, I wouldn't run stories written by women with the initials "LG" for awhile. First Laurie Goodstein wrote a whole story on the pope based on an erroneous yahoo translation. Now Linda Greenhouse has everyone up in arms over the wrong version of the Arizona bill.
Unfortunately, this whole "trespassing" thing, on which Greenhouse bases her outraged piece, is from an earlier Senate version of the bill, rather than the version actually signed by the governor. So the law doesn't just make it "appear as if the police are authorized to act only if they observe an undocumented-looking person actually committing a crime," it actually does that.
A thing she'd have known if she'd simply gone to the bill's website where the various versions are.

It's nice to know that at the "paper of record" we are perfectly comfortable making stuff up.
