Corrections for the Week of November 17 

The circumstances around Oscar Grant's death, and the spelling of Carl Theodor Dreyer.

The November 10 Raising the Bar column "Mehserle Sentence Is an Insult to the Black Community" stated that Oscar Grant was shot while handcuffed. In fact, the exact state of his hands at the time of the shooting is apparently a matter under dispute.

In our November 10 correction of our November 3 film review "The Pure and Clear Films of Carl Theodor Dreyer," we once again misspelled the filmmaker's name. It's probably good that he is long dead.
