…the Magazine’s constant air of self-congratulation…

Two editorial gremlins were unleashed in the December/03 issue. The first attributed a MacArthur “genius” grant to history professor Bruce Cumings (“Zone of Contention”); in fact, Cumings is the past holder of another variety of MacArthur Foundation fellowship.

The second gremlin struck in a sentence from Carrie Golus and Patrick Welch’s “Baby Pictures.” As a result, the sentence, describing the young Alexander Welch, did not tell the reader, as intended, that Alexander “has a full head of red-brown hair, immense eyes, and a heart-rending cry.” We regret the errors, utter a heart-rending cry of our own, and have disciplined the gremlins.
