Several days ago, I posted an announcement that read:

Robin Williams is currently rampaging through the countryside, butchering the citizenry and feasting on their entrails. He wields cleaver and scythe, like the Grim Reaper himself, and his eyes are black as midnight. He looms at a height of 9'10", and as the killing fury grows in his breast, his flesh deepens to a red the color of spilled blood. Stay indoors! Stay indoors! It is doubtful if this will save your life, or even your eternal soul, but it at least will ensure that when you are violently split from this earth, you will enjoy one final, fleeting second of familial warmth. May God have mercy on us all.

This was an error. The announcement should have read:

Robin Williams's new film Old Dogs opens November 25 at theaters everywhere.

It's easy to see how you made that mistake.

Thank you for your understanding, Ed. Really, it's just a matter of one or two words out of place.

Hey Bill,

This post got picked up by David Hudson at the Auteurs Daily.

I've made the same mistake a thousand times. I don't know how many times I've said Williams' height is 9'10" when we all know he's 7'8". Easy mistake. Oh and the rest of it... it's still true in theory - in theory - so I wouldn't beat myself up over it.

I really appreciate the selfless sentiment behind this notice, regardless of any factual errors contained within. As we are about to relearn over and over again during this holiday season, it's the spirit of the message that counts.
