“Mixing race, religion, and policy” (“Chicago Journal,” August/03), should have noted that the the nine-year-old Center for the Study of Race, Politics, and Culture was hosting its first miniconference. Economist Kenneth French teaches at Dartmouth, not MIT, as reported in the same issue’s “For the Record.” The new Chicago Manual of Style does not cover “Extensive Markup Language,” as noted in “The CMS Syndrome” (August/03), but “Extensible Markup Language.” Meanwhile 2003 Norman Maclean Faculty Award winner Herman L. Sinaiko, AB’47, PhD’61, has not retired (“Distinguished Company,” August/03); happily, he continues to teach as a professor in Humanities and the College.

The June/03 “Between the Lines” noted that Ahmad Chalabi, PhD’69, studied at Chicago with nuclear strategist Albert Wohlstetter. Chalabi’s courses were in mathematics. Fourth-year Kay Perdue’s one-woman show (“College Report,” June/03) concerned her experiences as a type-1 diabetic. We regret the errors.
