Comment #397 Error Correction

Comment #:  397A

Discussion Thread:  #397

I made a whopper of a mistake in Comment # 397 when discussing the AP report about the $279,000 bash the Secretary of Defense threw for 350 Hollywood celebrities.  The bill for their food was reported to be $76,000, which I erroneously said equated $2171 per dinner per person.  In fact, that number should have been  $217 per person - still gross, but nowhere near as gross as #2171.
I apologize for the confusion caused by the misplaced decimal.
