Yo NYT, get your districts straight

From the beginning of Jennifer Steinhauer's article in today's food section about members of congress having local treats in their office reception areas:

THE majority of people who come through Representative Jason Altmire’s office are not in search of a cookie.

But before they settle in for their meeting on hazardous materials transport, federal grants or other matters of import to the people of the Fourth District of Pennsylvania, Representative Altmire’s constituency, they are treated to a sugar cookie decorated with a frosted smiley face, made by Eat’n Park, a chain based in Homestead, Pa., in the Democrat’s district.

I haven't had one of those cookies in years! (now I know I just have to stop in next time I'm in Cannon).

But anyway, isn't Altmire's district out in the burbs somewhere? Yes.

Homestead is in Mike Doyle's district.

I worked for Eat'nPark the summer between high school and college. Those are some darn good cookies. Yum.
