German paper: We are sorry!

And in other news (almost) totally unrelated to the outrageous Danish cartoons:

Unintentionally the German paper 'Landeszeitung L√ľneburg' ran a commercial for the large German gas company E.ON on the same page as an article describing the annihilation of Gypsies during WW II in the KZ-camp Auschwitz. One would think that this is offensive enough, but the tagline, which in large letters said "E.ON takes care of tommorows gas today", made it even worse.

The paper has apologized and everybody has agreed it would probably be better to just let this matter rest and move on.
