    Correction: Whale Shot Story


    By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
    Published: September 11, 2007

    NEAH BAY, Wash. (AP) -- In stories Sept. 8 and Sept. 9 about the shooting of a California gray whale, The Associated Press, relying on information from the National Marine Fisheries Service, reported erroneously that the weapons used was .50-caliber machine gun. Further investigation by the agency determined that it was a large-caliber rifle.

    Just thought it was nice they cleared that up for me--although I have no personal problem whatsoever with Native Americans hunting whales with M2's.

    When used by private citizens they sure are. Usually they are AK-47s but I guess the fact checker missed that one :)
