Slate's mistakes.
June 6 2008 7:16 AM


In the June 4 "Today's Blogs," Michael Weiss misidentified the author of a post from the Freedom Eden blog.

In the June 2 "Family," David Plotz and Hanna Rosin described a Buddhist couple as claustrophobes. They meant to use the term claustrophiles.


In the June 2 "Press Box," Jack Shafer misspelled Kathleen Willey's last name.

In the May 22 "DVD Extras," David Zax incorrectly stated that The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles aired on ABC on Mondays after Monday Night Football. It aired after Monday Night Football only on the West Coast.

In the April 21 "Ad Report Card" about a jingle for Subway's $5 footlong sandwiches, Seth Stevenson quoted composer Jimmy Harned stating that the jingle's chord structure "goes down from a C to an A-flat." Harned clarifies that while the guitar part does go to an A-flat, the more prominent vocals are voicing an F minor.
