For the record

October 29, 2013

Lou Reed: An article about Lou Reed in the Oct. 28 Calendar section quoted a lyric from his song "All Tomorrow's Parties" as "hand-me-down clothes from who knows where." The line is "a hand-me-down dress from who knows where." In addition, for a photo of Reed and the singer Nico that accompanied the story, the caption implied that it was taken at the time of the first Velvet Underground album, which was released in 1967. The photo was taken at a 1972 reunion.

George Skelton column: Because of errors made during the production process, a headline at the top of George Skelton's column in the Oct. 28 Section A misspelled Capitol Journal as Capital Journal. In addition, the word "years" was dropped from a sentence in the column. The complete paragraph, which included a reference to former California Chief Justice Ronald M. George, should have read as follows: California's bloated Constitution, George noted, has been amended more than 500 times since its adoption in 1879. By contrast, the U.S. Constitution — adopted roughly 90 years earlier — has been amended only 17 times since the Bill of Rights.

Cesar Chavez: An article in the Oct. 25 LATExtra section about a proposed historical park honoring Cesar Chavez said it would include four existing sites in California: the Forty Acres National Historic Landmark and the Filipino Community Hall in Delano, the Cesar E. Chavez National Monument at Nuestra Señora Reina de la Paz in Keene, and the route of the 1966 Delano-to-Sacramento march. The fourth site is McDonnell Hall in San Jose. Though the National Park Service identified the march route as "nationally significant" and suitable for development by the agency, it is not part of the proposed park.

Students from China: A caption in the Oct. 27 Section A that accompanied an article about U.S. high schools getting a boost from tuition-paying Chinese students misspelled the first name of Renate Jefferson, an official with the private recruiting company Tower Bridge, as Rinate.

Harvard-Westlake: An article in the Oct. 28 LATExtra section about Harvard-Westlake School misspelled the first name of administrator Jeanne Huybrechts as Jean.

Auto racing: An item in the Day in Sports roundup in the Oct. 28 Sports section said Juan Miguel Fangio was one of three drivers to win four consecutive Formula One championships. The driver's name is Juan Manuel Fangio.
