Sacrilege! ‘NYT’ Gets Van Morrison Reference Wrong

By: E&P Staff

A New York Times correction today:

“An article and headline in Business Day on Wednesday about Toyota’s plans to put a new plant near Tupelo, Miss., referred incorrectly to Tupelo honey. While Van Morrison sang about it and Peter Fonda starred in ‘Ulee’s Gold,’ a movie about it, the city of Tupelo is not known for producing it.

“That distinction belongs to a region in Northwest Florida filled with tupelo gum trees, which is considered to be the world’s leading commercial producer of Tupelo honey. (Tupelo can still lay claim to being the birthplace of Elvis Presley.)”
