|To-do list for Metro Times:|
There hasn't been Ben's crossword in the last two issues. Does anyone know if he's on vacation or not coming back? Robert Happelberg 20:10, 4 May 2006 (UTC)
Dan Savage's Savage Love column this week says "Damn you, Wikipedia!" Carla Bondicteuresse 21:41, 24 August 2006 (UTC)
- I've asked Elonka what's the proper way to list this in WP:PRESS. I haven't done it because Savage's column is a syndicated feature. Robert Happelberg 23:43, 24 August 2006 (UTC)
The Metro Times makes very few mistakes, and has a good track record of issuing corrections regarding factual errors.
- July 18-24, 2007. Page 20, Harry Potter video game review refers to Harry's female classmate as "Hermoine Granger."
- April 11 - 17, 2007. There is an ad on page 5 for the Michigan Opera Theatre production of Turandot. On page 37 ("the buzz bage") there is an ad for the Detroit Opera House production of the children's version, Turnadot (e.g., Turn-A-Dot).
- December 18-24. In Lessenberry's column, Jack Kevorkian is referred to at one point as "Keovrkian."
- October 1-7. Billionaire candidate Dick DeVos's campaign manager John Truscott is in one paragraph referred to as "Turscott."
- September 6-12. Jack Lessenberry humbly acknowledged that he made a mistake about the deathplace of Iris Ovshinsky.
- August 9-15. Juan Cole's article refers to Hezbollah as "Hizbullah."
- July 5-11, 2006. Page 25, review for Robert Fanning's The Seed Thieves has the cover art with a caption that says "The Seed Theives."
- May 17 - 23, 2006. The review for Water by Deepa Mehta referred to the director with the pronoun "he".
- May 3 - 9, 2006. Page 36, review for Akeelah and the Bee, third paragraph says "Akeelah ... can spell words like 'prestidigitation' in a snap, but she's conceals [sic] the talent from her peers."
- September 21 - 27, 2005. Page 24, headline for review of Proof reads "Paltrow plus Hopkins plus mathmatics [sic] equals Oscars."
And there was one of Lessenberry's column that said "necessarily" when "necessary" made more sense, or viceversa, but I don't remember the date.
Regarding the todo list: "Talk more about what kind of stories the Metro Times covers that Freep and News don't." Here's one I remember reading about two brothers, both pastors, one gay, one straight. It was a cover story "A Tale of Two Brothers"  --ScarletSpiderDavE 18:16, 22 December 2006 (UTC)
