Slate's mistakes.
April 9 2010 7:06 AM


In an April 8 "Prescriptions," Timothy Noah misspelled the name of the faculty chair of the University of Chicago's Center for Health Administration Studies. It's Harold Pollack, not "Pollock."

In the April 8 "DoubleX," Jessica Grose misspelled the Massachusetts town Northampton.

In the April 5 " Faith-Based," Ankita Rao misspelled Jim Bakker's last name.


In the April 2 "Explainer," Christopher Beam incorrectly suggested that appointed state attorneys general are always from the same parties as their governors. In some cases, they are not.

In an item in the April 1 "Slatest," Jessica Loudis misstated that a Reuters article reported foreclosures had become a problem for the Catholic church. The article did not mention Catholic churches specifically.

In the March 30 "DVD Extras," Jessica Winter wrote that Leo McCarey's film Make Way for Tomorrow "could make a stone sob." Orson Welles was the first to observe that McCarey's film "could make a stone cry," and the line should have been attributed to Welles.
