Management regrets the error.
The Washington Post has retracted a story that claimed Public Enemy wrote a song called 9/11 is a Joke. The actual song title is 911 is a Joke, written by Flava Flav and released in 1990, eleven years before the Sept. 11 attacks. The song's lyrics are about the slow response time of emergency services in the ghetto.
In a related story, the Post stands by the independent audit that shows rapper Jay-Z has never had more than 87 problems at any one time, though they do verify Mr. Z's claim that none of those problems was ever bitch related.
Again, the management regrets the error.
