Slate's mistakes.
May 2 2008 7:03 AM


In the April 30 "Art," Christopher Benfey originally and incorrectly referred to the film The Spirit of the Beehive as Secrets of the Beehive.

In the April 30 "Press Box," Jack Shafer mistakenly included Jennifer Dunn in the Special Committee. Dunn was appointed to the committee but died. She was replaced by Susan M. Phillips.


In the April 29 "Music Box," Jody Rosen incorrectly stated that Leona Lewis won Britain's Pop Idol show. It was X Factor.

In the April 28 "Chatterbox," Timothy Noah described Hawaii as "the most recent place in the United States to be attacked by a foreign power." That distinction belongs to Alaska's Aleutian Islands, which Japan invaded six months after it bombed Pearl Harbor. In addition, Noah misspelled the name of the man who led Nazi German's Hitler Youth. It was Baldur von Schirach, not Balder von "Shirach."

Due to an editing error, Ottawa was misspelled in the April 28 "Hot Document."
