Tidbit (But the Rest of the Story was Good

The Chicago Tribune published the following correction last Tuesday (4/22 I think):

An article on Christians and Jews in Perspective on Sunday reflected the views of the author, but may have left the mistaken impression that all Jews refer to matzo during a seder as "the unity." In fact, that is a phrase used primarily by Messianic Jews. In addition, Jews no longer sacrifice animals. The practice ended nearly 2,000 years ago. Some Jews also objected to the notion that Christians see "references to Jesus" in the seder. Those references are not intended by mainstream Jews.

There were also several mistakes in a graphic on Page 3 of Perspective. Israel was mistakenly referred to as a "constitutional monarchy"; it is a parliamentary democracy. Yemen has a president, not a king. And the year 1979 marked the Islamic revolution in Iran, not Iran's independence as a nation.
