Great Moments in Copy Editing

An edition of the BYU student newspaper had to be pulled from newsstands, the Associated Press reports, because a photo
showed members of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, a governing body of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, which owns the university. The caption called the group the "Quorum of the Twelve Apostates."

University spokeswoman Carri Jenkins says it was an honest mistake that happened when an editor was doing a computerized spell check.
