In the May 18 "The Spectator," Ron Rosenbaum misspelled the name of country singer Darryl Worley and misstated the title of his song, which is not "I Just Got Back (From a War)" but "I Just Came Back (From a War)."

In the May 16 "Architecture," Witold Rybczynski misidentified the artist of the sculpture Wake. It is by Richard Serra, not Anthony Caro.

In the May 16 "War Stories," Fred Kaplan originally misstated the number of rank steps between lieutenant colonel and lieutenant general. There are four.
