In a Jan. 13 “Culturebox,” Sarah Weinman incorrectly identified Penelope Gilliatt's debut novel as A State of Change. It was called One by One. In addition, Sunday, Bloody Sunday's lead characters, a divorced working woman and a well-off Jewish doctor who fall for the same man, are not married to each other.
In a Jan. 11 "Future Tense" blog entry, Konstantin Kakaes referred to Sputniks when he meant to say Soyuz, which is the name of both the spacecraft used to reach the International Space Station and the rockets used to launch them.

Additionally, due to a transcript error, a joke about the V-chip was misattributed to Donald Verrilli rather than Justice Anthony Kennedy.
