And now, the rest of the story…

The Harvard Crimson (whose report was the basis for the report in the Guardian) has issued the following correction:

In reference to Scalia Describes ‘Dangerous’ Trend:
The Sept. 29 news story “Scalia Describes ‘Dangerous’ Trend” misquoted Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia as saying that “I even take the position that sexual orgies eliminate social tensions and ought to be encouraged.” In fact, Scalia said, “I even accept for the sake of argument that sexual orgies eliminate social tensions and ought to be encouraged.”

Quite a difference, don’t you think?
