In an article about the Los Angeles School District - there is this staggeringly wrong paragraph:
The district's peculiar borders have remained largely unchanged since 1961, when Los Angeles Unified was formed from the melding of a high school district and what was called the city school district. When the city was incorporated in 1870, the school district had the same boundaries. Over the years, outlying school systems were annexed to the city and high school districts.
LA was incorporated in 1870? If if that was a typo - how could no one catch anything so absurdly wrong?
It has now been over twelve hours since this went up on the LA Times website - and it still has not been corrected. How hard can it be to fix this?
