Yep. Got a postcard in the mail notifying me that they had made a mistake. I have already thrown that issue in the recycling - I don't want it staying in existence.big_load wrote:IDid anyone else receive an emergency mailing from Arizona Highways magazine? An article in the October 2013 edition incorrectly identified the toxic Fly Agaric mushroom as being edible. I noticed the error right away, but then decided that I must have misread it. If I ran a magazine, I would probably never identify anything as edible that didn't come from a grocery store or restaurant. Even some of that is questionable.
I'm always happy to see it in my mailbox, so I hope it survives the digital media juggernaut. I expect the author will face some discipline, and the next edition will surely have a big retraction and editorial comment.azbackpackr wrote:I hope people will still support the magazine. It has struggled a lot in recent years. I wonder if heads will roll due to this error? Somehow I would think so...
Part of the reason for that is that it is paid for by the Arizona State Legislature. Unlike New Mexico Magazine, Arizona Highways does not sell ads, at least not to the extent a commercial magazine does. And the Legislature has been close to de-funding it more than once.mazatzal wrote:Unfortunately, its heyday is long since and has been struggling for the last few years.
