Can Someone PLEASE Buy The Newsroom Of The LA Times A ... Map Of California! Update!

For at least 12 hours - and likely close to 15 - the below headline story has been sitting on the front page of the Times website:

Blaze burns in Los Padres
By Julie Cart, Rong-Gong Lin II, Tami Abdollah
Fires destroy 34,000 acres, close down a stretch of U.S. 395 and force evacuations.

Now as anyone who knows anything about California knows, the Los Padres National Forrest stretches all the way from the edge of Los Angeles County along the coast up to Big Sur. Highway 395, however, runs along the far eastern side of California - east the Sierras - and that is where a fire is currently burning in the Inyo National Forrest.

So how come of all the editors of LAT or anyone from the LAT who reads the website - none of them has noticed this error which has been up since Saturday?


LA Times - finally - discovers location of Inyo National Forest! It's in - Inyo County!

Inyo wildfires out of control
By Julie Cart and Jeffrey L. Rabin | 11:45 a.m.
Authorities are able to reopen U.S. Highway 395, but warn they may shut it down again.
