The Ear has been standing in the corner after last week’s gaffe. In the story about the Astoria Senior Center garden on 11th Street, the Ear mentioned the wrong Larry as being responsible for all that flowering glory. It is not Larry Miller, the senior center’s executive director, it’s Larry Allen, the former president of the senior center, who is pictured in a photo by Colin Murphey.
In her note, LaRee Johnson only referred to the gentleman responsible for the garden as “Mr. Larry.” The Ear leapt off Mount Assumption, thinking she meant Larry Miller. Nope, she didn’t. The Ear extends apologies to all involved.
