Scott McAdory of Orlando acts as if Darth Vader is using “Force choke” on him Saturday at Tampa Bay Comic Con in the DoubleTree hotel in Tampa. Vader was played by Bryan Shuerger of the 501st Legion, a nationwide group of Star Wars costume enthusiasts who attend conventions and charity events.

In a story on Sunday about a speed dating event at Tampa Bay Comic Con, a Tampa Bay Times reporter not strong in the ways of the Force (or Star Wars lore) quoted moderator Croix Provence as asking, "Are you ready to find love in all the wrong places?"

What Provence actually asked was, "Are you ready to find love in Alderaan places?" She was referring to Princess Leia Organa's home world, which appeared briefly in the 1977 film.

Regret the error, we do.
