Thats Axelrod, not Alexrod
Correction: January 13, 2013

Because of editing errors, an article about the actress Lindsay Lohan contains several inaccuracies.

The surname of an actor who appears with her in the movie "The Canyons" is James Deen, not Dean. And his legal name is Bryan Matthew Sevilla, not Seville.

Three passages are also rendered incorrectly because the word "tested" appears instead of "texted."

***

An article on Dec. 30 about Alex Okrent, an Obama campaign aide who died suddenly last summer, misspelled the surname of the campaign's chief strategist. He is David Axelrod, not Alexrod.

A report in The One Page Magazine on Jan. 6 about the 2012 presidential election misstated the number of percentage points by which Mitt Romney lost the popular vote. It was nearly four, not nearly three.

Correction: January 23, 2013

Because of editing errors, a correction about an article about the actress Lindsay Lohan contains several omissions.

Ms. Lohan owes the Chateau Marmont $460,000, not $46,000, most for the minibar.

The following sentence describing communications between Ms. Lohan and the movie's director, Paul Schrader, should read: "As she banged on his door, she texted him maniacally," not "manically."

Mr. Schrader did not strip off all of his clothes and walk toward Lohan naked but left his socks on.

Because of editing errors, a Dec. 29 article about a jailbreak in Chicago, Illinois, contains several inaccuracies.

The mayor of Chicago is Rahm Emanuel, not Ram Emanuel.

Escapee Joseph Banks is also known as "Jose Banks," not "Jos. A. Bank."

The Metropolitan Correctional Center was designed by architect Harry Weese, not Bertrand "Rube" Goldberg, and the architect Bertrand Goldberg is known as Bertrand Goldberg, not Bertrand "Rube" Goldberg.

***
A Compare & Contrast in The One Page Magazine on Jan. 20 misdescribed Ayn Rand and Talleyrand. Both had large noses, both were arrogant and known for their sexual appetites, but only Talleyrand was French.
