In a Sept. 10 "DoubleX," Jude Stewart mistakenly stated that Queen Victoria danced the polka at a Calcutta celebration in her honor. The author did not realize Queen Victoria did not visit India.

In a Sept. 8 "Politics," John Dickerson misidentified Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell as majority leader.


In a Sept. 7 "Politics," David Weigel omitted the word what in a quote from a speech by Delaware candidate Christine O'Donnell. It should have read, "But what I want to do for you, George, is restore honor back to America."

In his Sept. 4 "Press Box," Jack Shafer mistakenly stated that Jayson Blair was "sacked" by the New York Times. Blair resigned.
