    You have to wonder if someone complained and that's why it was corrected of if someone on the inside caught the "error" and forced a correction. Either way, wow.

    If the paper had copy editors who read "The Hobbit", this crap wouldn't happen.

    it said in some editions, so I suppose a Hobbit reading desk guy caught it. Just not fast enough.

    The NYT should just hire Hobbits to be copy editors from now on.
