The Atlantic's Boldest

A regular corrections column.

1. Sen. Barack Obama did NOT endorse Ned Lamont in the 2006 Connecticut Senate primary. It was only after Lamont received the nomination that Sen. Obama announced his support. Obama endorsed Lieberman during the primary.

2. A while back, I implied in a column that Ferdinand Marcos did not begin his reign of kleptocracy and terror until after Charlie Black's lobbying firm had severed ties with the Filipino politician. That's not correct. Marcos had been a pretty sketchy guy for quite a while before he asked Mr. Black's firm for help.
