Need-to-Know Wednesday Prints Retractions

A quick one today, ladies and gentlemen, as we all bustle about here preparing to begin the process of crowning the newest KSR blogger. A little housecleaning here today at NTKW. As you are undoubtedly aware by now, Need-to-Know Wednesday is easily the most important column on this site, because it each week delivers Kentucky Sports Radio’s most important news. This is probably because I am a very, very important writer. Please, do not question this.

That said, it falls upon NTKW to ensure that you don’t miss a beat, and today it’s necessary for us to eat some crow — occasionally, we jump the gun here and report news before it’s confirmed. As such, we are required, periodically, to admit to these mistakes and rectify them. Ha, I said “rectify.”

Here today, then, is a brief list of recent KSR missteps that we’d like to make sure are cleared. Please take to heart, accept our apologies for, and exhonerate us in the following KSR retractions.

——————–

-About a month ago, we reported that Eric Bledsoe was attacked by a “gray old lady,” which was misleading. This should have read that Bledsoe was attacked by “the Gray Lady” the New York Times.

-We recently reported that Michael Chandler is seriously considering Hillman College. This college does not exist.

-A March piece should have stated that “rumors of John Calipari meeting with the Chicago Bulls are being addressed by administration,” and not — as actually reported — “rumors of John Calipari meeting with the Chicago Bulls are being addressed by Nick Jonas and the Administration.”

-While featuring several newsworthy items, a November 2008 evening post entitled “Hal Linden’s News and Views” contained no actual views.

-A June 2008 post by Thomas Beisner stated that “It’s Midnight and time for some recruiting news.” This statement, read at any other time of the day, is false.

-A recent statement alluding to Alan Cutler combing his hair has lately come to light as being untrue.

-In June of 2007, Bryan the Intern mistakenly supported Sir Isaac Newton’s corpuscular theory of light, which states that light is made up of small, discrete particles which travel in a straight line with a finite velocity and kinetic energy. This theory has since been disproved by theories stemming from Huygen’s dual-wave particle theory of light. He has been fired.
