'L.A. Times' Apologizes for Dog of a Quote The Los Angeles Times has apologized for a bogus quote in the paper this week.

The quote was in an old press release -- from sometime around last April Fool's Day. The paper says its reporter has met the governor, and it really seemed like something he would say.
