In my Tuesday post I recalled a time when a Sac Bee ombudsman criticized the paper for its coverage of wildfires in Southern California. I didn't say so in the post, but while speaking in the Bee newsroom a few days later, I attributed that criticism to the current public editor, Armando Acuna.

That was wrong. The incident I referred to occurred in November 2003 and involved Armando's predecessor, Tony Marcano. I was also off a bit about his point; he was mainly critical of the speed with which the Bee responded, not the number of reporters, and he alleged the paper had "meager resources" for such coverage.

So much for memory. I'm sorry.
