Bill James was asked about the error at BillJamesOnline.com. His response: “It’s more funny than embarrassing. I’ve worked with the Wall Street Journal, and I’ll tell you that their standards of double-checking/fact checking are the highest in the industry. But that’s a good one.”

* Gladwell in 2012: “One of [Bill] James’s best chapters is on the Kennedy assassination” (grantland.com)
