Better late than never.
The New York Times's 1853 story on the subject of this year's Best Picture Oscar winner, 12 Years a Slave, was all over the Internet this week. And a reader quickly noted that the Times spelled Solomon Northup's name incorrectly. Twice.
So the paper printed a correction, more than 160 years later.

At some point in Courtney Love's wild girl wanderings Wednesday night, the rocker and her phone went their separate ways, with the device landing on the floor of a New York City taxicab.
Luckily for Love, the next passenger in the vehicle was New York Times op-ed columnist Frank Bruni.

Tuesday, 11/12/13, marks the first sequential date since Oct. 11, 2012. But of course, it's not the first 11/12/13 in history; Nov. 12, 1913 also featured the same shorthand. So, what stories did the citizens of a hundred years ago enjoy as they opened the last newspapers dated 11/12/13? We took a gander.
In some respects, the world of journalism is unchanged since 1913. International crises and disasters dominated the front page as they do now. In the Midwest, hundreds died in the wake of one of the largest blizzards the Great Lakes have ever seen. Abroad, Chile struggled to rebuild after a magnitude 6.3 earthquake that had killed two hundred people the previous week.

Ever wonder what happens once Lindsay Lohan is cast in a film?
New York Times Magazine contributing writer Stephen Rodrick found out when he spent time with the actress on the set of The Canyons – an explicit Kickstarter-funded "microbudget" film penned by American Psycho author Bret Easton Ellis.
In the nearly 8,000 word piece, Rodrick unveils a unique version of Lohan, 26, in which she goes on extended crying jags yet shows actual talent on set. Still, he depicts her behaving very unreliably (at one point actually fleeing from crew members to go out to lunch with her friends) and acting jealous of adult film star James Deen, her costar.

After being fricasseed by The New York Times in a blistering restaurant review that a chef wouldn't wish upon his worst enemy, Guy Fieri says he's not canceling his subscription to the paper.
But the Food Network's Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives host – the 10th highest-paid chef in the country – is not taking the Times attack by food critic Pete Wells lying down, either.
"I just thought it was ridiculous," Fieri said on Thursday's Today show, after flying all night to appear on the program to defend his 2-month-old Guy's American Kitchen & Bar in Times Square, the target of Wells's scathing attack.
