Slate's mistakes.
Aug. 14 2009 7:12 AM


In an Aug. 13 "Science" column, Dave Goldberg misspelled Joe Polchinski's name and did not distinguish between his past and current university affiliations.


In the Aug. 7 installment of "The End of America," Josh Levin originally stated that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints believes that Jesus will be resurrected to rule on American soil. The LDS Church believes he will return, not be resurrected. In addition, the church believes that Jesus will also reign in the old Jerusalem.

In the Aug. 5 installment of " The End of America," a map of Canada originally omitted New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island.

On Slate's Aug. 5 home page, a headline for the "End of America" series—"Last One in Lake Erie Is a Rotten Egg! When global warming takes America, we'll all swarm to Buffalo"—was paired with a photograph of Lake Erie that included a view of the Cleveland skyline.
