Slate's mistakes.
June 3 2005 1:47 PM


In the May 31 "Today's Blogs," Rachael Larimore wrote that bloggers were "nonplussed" by the outing of Deep Throat. She meant to say bored. Nonplussed means perplexed or bewildered.


In the May 31 "International Papers," Vivienne Walt originally referred to an op-ed by French journalist Alain Hertoghe that appeared in the Senegalese paper Le Quotidien. However, Heroghe's piece was originally written for Yahoo! France and was reprinted by Le Quotidien, with appropriate attribution.

In the May 28 "Today's Papers," Alexander Barnes Dryer incorrectly called Thomas Noe a Republican representative. Noe is not an elected representative.

In the May 26 "Chatterbox," Timothy Noah said Paul Begala received preferential treatment from the Washington Baseball Club in securing season tickets to the Washington Nationals baseball team. In fact, he did not.
