I made a mistake last week by publishing in our print edition an early version of a story about the blight that is dragging Springfield down. The final version, posted online, gives the Illinois Housing Development Authority its say on the disaster that is Poplar Place. So for the complete story read "Blight fight" at illinoistimes.com. Print is exacting. There are deadlines, and mistakes become indelible. Print holds us to a high standard, and we'll keep on trying to meet it. –Fletcher Farrar, editor and CEO
