Slate's mistakes.

In the April 19 "Hot Document," Bonnie Goldstein inadvertently implied that Ross Perot Jr. once brought a gun onto a plane. The gun was found in Perot's carry-on and intercepted at the airport. (As the article made clear, the gun's inclusion in Perot's carry-on was unintentional.)

In the April 18 "Big Idea," Jacob Weisberg wrongly implied that state governments may explicitly give greater weight to rural votes than to urban ones. This practice is forbidden by Supreme Court voting rights decisions in the 1960s.


Due to a copy-editing error in the April 17 "Architecture," the Levittowner's 8-foot-square kitchen window was incorrectly described as an 8-square-foot kitchen window.

In the April 15 "Today's Papers," Jesse Stanchak stated that Iraqi Sunnis set up a parallel intelligence agency with the Iraqi government. It was started by Shiites.

In the April 14 "Today's Papers," Jesse Stanchak mistakenly stated that Paul Wolfowitz is head of the WTO. He is president of the World Bank.
