Your caption calls this a a rifle. In fact, it is a shotgun.


Several readers noticed this one. We corrected: GBU Editor

Georgia on my Mind



I like the “News Map” Flash presentation of events around the world. However, there is an error. On the Map for May 8th, 2008 news for the state of Georgia ( in the United States ) has news for Georgia ( the one that was once part of the USSR ). Yes they have the same name and spelling but pretty bad to confuse the two on a “Global” news Web site.
Just thought Reuters may want to know.John
