An age old problem

A misunderstanding during the editorial process resulted in an error at the start of this Observations article by Tessa Richards in her Border Crossing column (BMJ 2007;335:698, 6 Oct, doi: 10.1136/bmj.39356.408102.59). We mistakenly attributed the opening quote to the world's oldest man, Tomji Tanabe; the quote was in fact the voice of the author and should have appeared only once in the article (as the first sentence of the final paragraph, as it indeed does). The other quote attributed to Tanabe (and the rest of the information about him) was correct.
