Why do you cling so desperately to a mistake Miss Carol? Please, as a friend and don't take this the wrong way, stop making a fool of yourself.<quoted text>
I do know in his first attempt at publishing Journeys in Black and White which was ultimately shelved in place of Dreams of My Father, his biographical information stated he was born in Kenya.
Posted it the other day. Apparently, even if the publisher writes the biographies, it's usually approved by the author.
Why would even a publisher print an author's birthplace so erroneously?
Miriam Goderich edited the text of the bio; she is now a partner at the Dystel & Goderich agency, which lists Obama as one of its current clients.
"This was nothing more than a fact checking error by me--an agency assistant at the time," Goderich wrote in an emailed statement to Yahoo News. "There was never any information given to us by Obama in any of his correspondence or other communications suggesting in any way that he was born in Kenya and not Hawaii. I hope you can communicate to your readers that this was a simple mistake and nothing more."
