In the March 26 "Press Box,"  Jack Shafer mistakenly stated that a drug party described in a Time magazine story took place on Cape Cod. It took place in New Jersey.

In the March 26 " Television," Troy Patterson misidentified Troy Aikman as Troy Aiken.


In the March 25 "Other Magazines" item on Vogue, Morgan Smith gave the wrong first name for Evelyn Nesbit's benefactor Stanford White.

In the March 22 "Today's Papers," Morgan Smith misidentified a region between Pakistan and Afghanistan as a "border with Pakistan." It should have read a "border with Afghanistan."

In the March 21 " Culturebox," Paul Collins incorrectly referred to New York Telephone as NYNEX in pre-1984 references.

In the March 21 "Explainer," Michelle Tsai understated the relative density of water to air. Water is more than 800 times denser than air.
