NEW YORK The Washington Post ran an article Thursday that included a phone number for evacuees in Lebanon to call — but it turned out to be a number for a sex line.

The paper corrected it online but the number already appeared in print on A19.

The Web site Wonkette first reported it. A staffer called the “800” and got, the site said, this message: “Feeling horny? Try these red hot lines from National. Live hot fun at just 69 cents per minute.”

The lesson, it said: “Americans seeking information about evacuations of US citizens in Lebanon should just relax, man.”
