For the Record
How I Made It: In the March 25 Business section, a headline on an article about El Pollo Loco franchisee Michaela Mendelsohn referred to transgender people as transgenders. It is not The Times’ practice to use this term as a noun.
Police shooting: In the March 27 Section A, an article about the shooting of a Sacramento man by police referred to Rep. Nancy Pelosi as House speaker. She is the House minority leader.
Los Alamitos: In the March 20 Section A, an article about Los Alamitos leaders approving an ordinance exempting it from California’s sanctuary policies said that the city was 71% white and that whites made up 61% of Orange County residents. Those 2010 census numbers include Hispanics among whites. Non-Hispanic whites make up 59% of Los Alamitos and 44% of Orange County, according to that census.
