Slate’s Mistakes for the Week of Oct. 7

Due to an editing error, the Oct. 11 Care and Feeding misstated a Breaking Bad reference. You should learn from Walter White and dissolve a body in plastic, not a bathtub.

In an Oct. 10 Jurisprudence, Frank Bowman mistakenly referred to Article 1, Section 2 and Article 1, Section 5 of the Constitution as Article II, Section 2 and Article II, Section 5, respectively. Due to an editing error, Justice Byron White’s first name was misspelled.

In an Oct. 10 Television, Jack Hamilton misidentified the location of a scene from The Righteous Gemstones’ Season 1 finale. The scene in question takes place in an Outback Steakhouse, not a Denny’s.

In an Oct. 9 Slatest, Aaron Mak misidentified the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives as the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms and the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department as the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department.

In an Oct. 9 War Stories, Fred Kaplan misstated that Polish planes flew over Kaliningrad in an unusual zigzag pattern. The pattern was not different from what had been arranged ahead of time.

In the Oct. 7 Angle, Abby McIntyre misstated that none of Lauren Gunderson’s plays had been staged in New York City. None of them have debuted there.

In an Oct. 2 Slatest, Elliot Hannon misstated that West Point High School is in southern Virginia. It is in eastern Virginia.
