The Purple Star?

After last week's Zarqawi/SAW nonsense, Powerline reports that the New York Times has now outdone itself in displaying its abject ignorance of military affairs. This quote from the Times' corrections section practically speaks for itself:

The article also misstated the name of a service medal that a general presented to Sergeant Gomez's mother. It is a Purple Heart, not a Purple Star.

Purple Star? It boggles the mind...
