A little devil overlooked in the Fink detail

The Age
These things can happen to anybody, and I sure could use a proof-reader, but the Finkelstein report (paragragh 7.15) refers to the the late Creighton Burns who went on to become Editor of The Age as "Crayton Burns." When he died in 2008, Michelle Grattan described him as "an ornament to his profession." Burns was The Age correspondent in Washington during my time there with the Australian Embassy in the seventies, so I'm ancient enough to remember such things as the correct spelling of his first name.
