In the Sept. 29 "Human Nature," Will Saletan incorrectly said that Scott Minnich was a professor at Iowa State. In the Pennsylvania evolution trial, the Dover school board submitted two briefs on July 13, 2005. One said Minnich was a professor at Iowa State. Another said he was a professor at the University of Idaho. Based on the first brief, Saletan identified him as being at Iowa State. Minnich is at the University of Idaho.
In the Sept. 27 "Press Box," Jack Shafer mistakenly described Mary Jo Meisner as a former Post metro editor. She was city editor.
In the Sept. 26 "Hollywood Economist," Edward Jay Epstein originally and incorrectly identified the chairman of Adelphia Cable as John Riga. His name is John Rigas.
In the Sept. 23 "Gizmos," Fred Kaplan originally understated the price of a year-old Sony television and overstated the price of a year-old Sony projector. The Qualia 006 rear-projection television sold for $13,000, not $10,000. Sony's SXRD front projector sold for $30,000, not $40,000.
In the Sept. 23 "In Other Magazines," Bidisha Banerjee incorrectly identified Larry Harvey as an Economist correspondent. Harvey is the co-founder and director of the Burning Man Festival.
