In a May 3 "Future Tense" blog post, Adam Sneed misspelled the last name of theoretical physicist Michio Kaku.

A photo on the May 1 Slate homepage showed an F-16 fighter plane in reference to a story about an F-35 fighter plane.

In an April 30 “Politics,” David Weigel said that former Sen. Paul Coverdell of Georgia died in a plane crash. He died of a cerebral hemorrhage.

In an April 30 “TV Club," Julia Turner misstated when Sally Draper ate the fish in Mad Men. It was before she saw the blow job.

In a March 29 “Obit,” Meghan O'Rourke misquoted Adrienne Rich’s poem “Aunt Jennifer’s Tigers.” The poem states that the wedding band “sits heavily upon Aunt Jennifer’s hand,” not “on Aunt Jennifer’s hand.”
