"An Oct 14 Style article about access to the prison camp for terrorism suspects at the U.S. naval base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, incorrectly referred to Navy Capt. Robert Durand as 'thickset.' He should have been described as muscular."

-- From a correction published in the Washington Post yesterday morning. The good officer doesn't seem particularly thickset or muscular in this photo, but he does look fit.
