Corrections

A Feb. 10 "Architecture" article by Witold Rybczynski mistakenly stated that that Columbia, Md., and Reston, Va., were planned 20 years ago. They were planned 40 years ago.

A "Bushism of the Day" item posted on Feb. 10 reported that President Bush said on Sept. 23, 2004, "Listen, the other day I was asked about the National Intelligence Estimate, which is a National Intelligence Estimate." Though this is the version reported in several transcripts, an audiotape of the speech makes clear that Bush's more coherent actual words were, "Listen, the other day I was asked about the NIE, which is a National Intelligence Estimate."

In a Feb. 10 "Jurisprudence," Dahlia Lithwick incorrectly spelled the name of professor Ward Churchill's alma mater as Sangaman State University. The correct spelling is Sangamon State University. The name of the school is misspelled on Churchill's University of Colorado faculty bio page.

In a Feb 10 "Press Box," Jack Shafer originally referred to New York City circulation of the New York Times when he should have referred to the more expansive New York City market.

In a Feb. 7 "Ad Report Card," Seth Stevenson incorrectly suggested that the song "Be My Baby" (by the Ronettes) is an example of "the Philadelphia sound." In fact, the song is a classic example of Phil Spector's "Wall of Sound," whereas the "Philly Sound" is exemplified by soul acts such as the O'Jays and Archie Bell and the Drells. 

In a Feb 2 "Art" article, Mia Fineman misspelled the name of the artist Gainsborough. It is Gainsborough, not Gainesborough as was originally stated.

If you believe you have found an inaccuracy in a Slate story, please send an e-mail to corrections@slate.com, and we will investigate. General comments should be posted in "The Fray," our reader discussion forum.
