When we last left the Bronies—adult male nerds who love the kid's cartoon My Little Pony—they were reeling from the loss of their best source of pirated episodes. Since then they've made it to the big time with a My Little Pony-related correction in the New York Times.
An article on Monday about Jack Robison and Kirsten Lindsmith, two college students with Asperger syndrome who are navigating the perils of an intimate relationship, misidentified the character from the animated children's TV show "My Little Pony" that Ms. Lindsmith said she visualized to cheer herself up. It is Twilight Sparkle, the nerdy intellectual, not Fluttershy, the kind animal lover.
