Naval rite of passage

THE BALTIMORE SUN

A photo caption in Saturday's editions of The Sun incorrectly reported the time U.S. Naval Academy plebes needed to climb the lard-coated Herndon Monument -- an annual rite marking the end of their freshman year. A Silver Spring midshipman made it in 2 hours, 21 minutes and 37 seconds.

The Sun regrets the error.
