The Times has number trouble

As Tigerhawk so aptly points out today, "You have to look very carefully when the Times starts spewing numbers."
Well, yes, indeed.

Not one, but TWO incorrect dates appear in this article> . And it's not like they're obscure dates. One is the date that Truman was elected ('48, "Dewey Beats Truman" ringing any bells?) and the other is the year of Teddy Roosevelt's election (1901, not 1900). Tiger speculates that perhaps their "starting lineup" had the night off.

Hmm, wonder if Jennifer 8 was on duty ... ?
