Apology of the week

From today’s Independent, p 13

“David Gest

In the INdependent Extra on 18 March 2008, we incorrectly suggested that DAvid Gest alleged that Liza Minelli gave him herpes.  Mr Gest has told us, and we accept, that he did not make any such allegation and that he never had the disease.  We apologise to Mr Gest for any embarrassement or distress caused by this mistake.”

I watch the telly and read when not doing law stuff and plugging my decade and a half old unwatched Edinburgh fringe show.
