bluestem, one can make corrections to sources of funding for some projects as mentioned in the article. But you seem to want to be a sourpuss in demonizing the Journal for maybe a misinformed funding source error. I would give them the benefit of the doubt and make a suggestion they should direct their efforts to the NEH.

It is a great story and deserves to be told well. As far as I can tell, DeJonge has never applied for a NEH or NEA grant, so that shouldn't be the issue. There is a much easier route: donate directly. He doesn't have that far to go and you can make a difference.
