In a Nov. 8 "Politics" piece, Richard Ford misstated the percentage of voters for Kerry, as well as Bush's margin of victory. Forty-eight percent voted for Kerry, not 49 percent. Bush won by a margin of 3 percent, not a margin of 1 percent.

In a Nov. 10 "Left Field," Felix Gillette stated that the International Paralympic Committee does not enforce its own rule on the length of prosthetics used by sprinters. The IPC has no rules about the length of prosthetics. Another governing body, the International Sports Organization for the Disabled, does. The article also mistakenly attributed to sprinter and prosthetist Brian Frasure the belief that the IPC should start enforcing leg height restrictions. Finally, the statement that a prosthetic called the C-Leg was introduced last year was incorrect. It debuted in 1997.
