Subject: Mea culpa; Dec. 27 pool correx

A pool report from Dec. 27 erroneously stated that Brendan Smialowski of AFP while at an evening pool hold drank wine, a Chianti from the Amalfi Coast. Mr. Smialowski was not drinking, and (as immediately noted by Tony Podesta) there is no Chianti made on the Amalfi Coast. Mr. Smialowski is an incredibly hard-working journalist and a really nice guy who, after returning to his hotel around midnight Dec. 27, was back with the pool for a 5:30 am call. Your pooler apologizes profusely for a joke written after a very long day that has gone terribly awry.
