River Mea Culpa

I have a retraction to make. I goofed on the air today and said that the Barack Obama rally yesterday in Portland, Ore., happened along the banks of the Columbia River. This is not true.

The rally happened along the banks of the WILLAMETTE river. As a former resident of the Pacific Northwest and someone with family and friends in Portland, I am ashamed to have made this mistake.

My sister Abi and my college roommate Kelly are definitely going to give me a hard time.
