In the Sept. 3 "Double X," Nick Hornby's Fever Pitchwas incorrectly identified as a work of fiction.

In the Sept. 2 "Jurisprudence," Harlan J. Protass incorrectly stated that jurors in the Blagojevich trial were reportedly deadlocked 11-to-1 in favor of conviction on 23 counts.


In a Sept. 2 "Politics," William Saletan mistakenly described Rep. John Shimkus as a congressman from Missouri. He represents Illinois.

In an Aug. 31 "Slatest" entry, Meredith Simons misspelled the name of Stanford University.

In the Aug. 31 "War Stories," Fred Kaplan incorrectly stated that the Aug. 31 troop-withdrawal deadline was part of the United States' status of forces agreement with Iraq. In addition, a word was left out of a quotation from Obama's speech on Iraq.

In the Aug. 30 "Jurisprudence," Dahlia Lithwick quoted a speech by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, reporting she'd said, "One day I was particularly wary." Ginsberg had said, "One day I was particularly weary."

In the Aug. 28 "Politics," David Weigel referred to portraits of Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, and Benjamin Franklin at the Glenn Beck rally. The first in the series was Samuel Adams, not Jefferson.
