San Antonio's Express-News is concerned about the state of American matrimony. (Under siege, say experts!) To illustrate the front-page story, the Texas newspaper ran pictures of Nell and Wallace Crain: one on their wedding day, and now, as a loving elderly couple, still together after 67 years. The secret: a commitment to stay "married until death", according to the photo caption. Unfortunately, death had indeed broken their bond, unbeknownst to the Express-News' editors. Nell and Wallace Crain, interviewed last summer, died within two weeks of eachother, around Thanksgiving. The author of the piece, J. Michael Parker, explained: "I didn't feel like Mr. Crain's comments needed updating." The Express-News' abject correction, and apology, after the jump.
