The Correction

And so the Monday flood of emails and letters and pigeon post came as predicted, with the following being an atypical example:

"Question number 4 in the Times2 Quiz of 14 November is incorrect. I have worked in Baku and have visited the Shirvanshah Palace, both of which are on the shores of the Caspian Sea, not on the shores of the Black Sea."

Atypical in that, I don't usually get eyewitness testimony from a former Soviet republic (you must think I am obsessed with them. Could be).

Printed grovel to be printed in the next couple of days. (I went back and checked my latest lot and found one silly ambiguity and one wrong year. I should stop verifying my questions at 4 in the morning.)
