Adventures in Ex Post Editing

From my friend and colleague Robert Malchman:

In the NY Times obituary of Raquel Welch  there is now this sentence:  “She even called her 2010 book, a memoir and self-help guide, Beyond the Cleavage.” When I read it yesterday, it described the book as "a memoir cum self-help guide.”

I guess I wasn't the only person who thought there was some ambiguity there because Welch was certainly the source of a great deal of cum self-help guidance over the years.  Someone at The Times obviously got their hands on the line and pulled off the change.
