Due to an editing error, the name of the country which Paul Edwards visited was misspelled ("ACB Pre-Convention Board of Directors Meeting Highlights," September 2001). The country was Grenada.
In the same article, the Sutton nomination information was incorrect. Sutton was nominated for a seat on the Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit, not the Supreme Court.
The e-mail address listed for Abraham Nemeth in "Comments on Mathematical Aspects of the UEBC" (September 2001) was incorrect. The correct e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
