Will this appear in Ark. Dem-Gaz?

From NY Times:

Gov. Jon S. Corzine apologized to New Jersey residents Monday as he left the hospital 18 days after a devastating car crash in which he was not wearing a seat belt and was riding in a car traveling at more than 91 miles an hour on the Garden State Parkway.

“I set a very bad example,” said a contrite Mr. Corzine, who broke his left femur and 11 ribs in the accident, [was] speaking from a wheelchair just outside Cooper University Hospital in Camden, N.J.

Corzine apparently doesn't know that it is editorializing to suggest that failure to wear a seat belt can contribute to injuries and death. My editing shows D-G copy editors where to begin the cuts to make this story conform to Griffin Smith's orders.

UPDATE: The earth moves. In a brief In the News item in the D-G, Corzine is quoted as apologizing for not wearing a seat belt.
