In a March 8 “The Middlebrow,” Bryan Curtis misspelled Robert Zubrin’s last name.

In the March 7 “Explainer," Katy Waldman stated that the RAND Corp. originated to World War II. RAND was created in 1946, the year after the end of the war.

In a March 7 "Gallery," Heather Murphy originally misstated Newt Gingrich’s age on Slide 14.

In a March 2 "Future Tense" blog post, Torie Bosch misspelled the science fiction award won by writer Bruce Sterling. It is of course the Hugo Award, not the Huge Award.

In a March 1 “Design” article on the history of Dutch wax prints, Julia Felsenthal incorrectly referred to a collection that the fashion brand Marni designed for Target. In fact, Marni designed the collection for H&M.

In a March 1 "Slatest" post, Rachael Levy misspelled the name of Richard Cebull, the federal judge who admitted to sending a racist email about President Obama from his government account.
