Slate's mistakes.
May 15 2009 6:59 AM


In a May 12 "Jurisprudence," Emily Bazelon mistakenly stated that Judge Diane Wood wrote a 1992 opinion throwing out a lawsuit brought by the National Organization for Women against the anti-abortion Pro-Life Action Network. Wood was not part of the 1992 decision.

In a May 11 "Politics," Christopher Beam incorrectly suggested that a report on health care modernization concluded that it would save the industry $600 billion. It was referring to government savings.


In the May 8 "Spectator," Ron Rosenbaum wrote that a scene from Terminator 2 was set near Manhattan. The film was set in Los Angeles.

In the May 6 "Movies," Dana Stevens originally misspelled the name of Khrushchev and did not specify that the famous shoe-pounding incident happened at the United Nations, not in the United States.

In the May 4 "Foreigners," Anne Applebaum said Starbucks first opened in Prague a few months ago. It opened in early 2008.
