Slate's mistakes.

In an Aug. 7 "Explainer" on the California recall, Ed Finn incorrectly stated that Sen. Diane Feinstein would not be able to choose her own successor to the Senate if she were to run in the gubernatorial election and win. In fact, according to California Election Code 11720, Feinstein could select her replacement. That person would then serve until the next general election, in November 2004.

The introduction to an Aug. 7 "Recycled" column on Pumping Iron incorrectly claimed the bodybuilding documentary was Arnold Schwarzenegger's first movie. In fact, he appeared in three movies before Pumping Iron: Hercules in New York, The Long Goodbye, and Stay Hungry.

In her "Book Club" entry for Thursday Aug. 7, Judith Shulevitz mistakenly cited The Counterlife in place of Operation Shylock.


In the caption for Slide 10 in an Aug. 6 "Architecture" slide show, Christopher Hawthorne misidentified the state in which the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art is located. The museum is in Kansas City, Mo., not the state of Kansas.

In an Aug. 5 article about the worldview of Sen. Bob Graham, William Saletan and Avi Zenilman originally stated that Sen. Graham is the ranking member of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence. In fact, because of term limits, Graham no longer serves on the committee.

An Aug. 5 article by Mark A. R. Kleiman originally and incorrectly described Prison Fellowship's InnerChange Freedom Initiative as "a fundamentalist prison-within-a-prison." The Prison Fellowship regards itself as being part of the evangelical tradition rather than the fundamentalist tradition.
