Slate's mistakes.

In the Feb. 7 "Clive's Lives" book excerpt, Clive James incorrectly identified Buenos Aires as the city where Jorge Luis Borges died. He died in Geneva.

In the  Feb. 6 "Explainer," Torie Bosch incorrectly stated that ground fault circuit interrupters measure power. GFCIs measure current.


In the Feb. 6 "Summary Judgment," Doree Shafrir misidentified Fall Out Boy's Infinity on High as the band's second album. It is the band's fourth full-length album.

In the Feb. 1 "Jurisprudence" Dahlia Lithwick mistakenly referred to "Charleston, N.C." Charleston is in South Carolina.

In the Jan. 30 "Food" about Top Chef, Sara Dickerman mistakenly stated that Marcel Vigneron showed off his knife collection unbidden, when Ilan Hall initiated the knife show-and-tell.

In the Jan. 28 "Middlebrow" Bryan Curtis misstated a quote from Tim Zagat. The correct quote should read, "I would never replace Einstein with 100 physicists, but I would replace a restaurant critic with a hundred customers." He also misstated the highest-ranked French restaurant in the Zagat survey. It is Le Bernardin, not Daniel.
