In the May 26 "Press Box," Jack Shafer misspelled journalist Tim Dickinson's last name. He also misidentified Franklin D. Roosevelt as Franklin R. Roosevelt.

In a May 25 "Interrogation," Jessica Grose misspelled the name Medea.


In the May 25 "Sports Nut," Brian Phillips misidentified F.C. Barcelona player Sergio Busquets as French. He is Spanish.

In a May 24 "Culturebox," Tom Shone mistakenly wrote that X-Men: First Class is set in 1963, during the Cuban Missile Crisis. That event was in 1962, which is the year when much of the movie is set.

Uhura and Captain America director Joe Johnston.
