MBP of the Week: Newsday

Last week on Long Island, 25-year-old Tanisha Armstrong and her 4-year-old daughter, Talani Johnson, died in their apartment of carbon monoxide poisoning.

This has been fairly big news in New York City, with the victims’ relatives calling for a crackdown on “slumlords.”

This past Wednesday, Newsday issued the following correction:

“A photo published yesterday did not show Talani Johnson, who died last week of suspected carbon monoxide poisoning. It showed Azariah Johnson, a surviving sibling.”

Of course it did!

I'm just hearing this story for the first time--here! And I live in NY! Between coverage of the missing woman, Stacy Peterson and her husband Drew Peterson (not even a local story) and the Broadway stagehands strike (which has been settled), I somehow missed this story. :(
