In the June 22 "Summer Movies," Keith Phipps stated that Warren Beatty received screenwriting credit for Dick Tracy. Writers Jim Cash and Jack Epps Jr. received credit.

In the June 21 "Books," Michael Levenson stated that E.M. Forster delivered the Clark Lectures 90 years ago. He gave them in 1927, 83 years ago.


In the June 21 "Foreigners," Anne Applebaum misquoted a German magazine that referred to "traditional instruments of South African football," not "South American football," as we originally rendered it.

In a June 19 "Sports Nut," Stefan Fatsis originally stated that the United States concluded its stint at the 1998 World Cup by losing to Iran. The loss to Iran came in the U.S. national team's second of three games.

In the June 10 "DoubleX, Marisa Meltzer incorrectly stated that Avis Cardella's book Spent stated that shopping addicts are most commonly thirtysomething women. The book cited different studies with conflicting conclusions about the age range.
