The L.A. Times ran the following correction on Wednesday:
“A caption with a photograph in Sunday’s Calendar section of the Staples Singers performing a 1972 concert said Mavis Staples was on the left. She was on the right.”
That photograph isn’t on the L.A. Times website. But an interesting profile of Mavis Staples is.
This is the sort of photographic misidentification I find hardest to forgive... when it’s attached to a nice, long story about that person.
The “Where's Waldo?” aspect also sucks. I mean, the real Mavis was in there somewhere. Just took ’em two tries to point her out.
