Believe it or not, this mistake appeared on the AP Stylebook website. I imagined that website would have a rigorous proofreading process. The moral of the story is that everyone makes mistakes. (I know I make plenty of them.)

I tweeted to @APStylebook about the problem. Although no one responded to me, I see that the mistake has been corrected.
