For the record

Obama nominations: An article in the Nov. 1 Section A about Senate Republicans rejecting two key nominations by President Obama included a headline that described the two positions at stake as a Fannie Mae post and a D.C. District Court judgeship. Obama nominated Patricia Millett to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, not the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.

Hybrid vehicles: An article in the Nov. 2 Business section about plug-in hybrid cars said Ford had revised the fuel economy ratings of its Fusion hybrid and Fusion Energi plug-in hybrid sedans, from 47 miles per gallon to 43 mpg. Ford revised the rating only of its C-Max hybrid; ratings for the Fusion sedans have not changed. The Fusion hybrid is rated at 47 mpg; the Fusion Energi is rated at 43 mpg.

Civil War-era songs: An article in the Nov. 3 Calendar section about the CD set "Divided & United: The Songs of the Civil War" said Woody Guthrie took the melody of the song "Hobo's Lullaby" from "Just Before the Battle, Mother." "Hobo's Lullaby," recorded and popularized by Guthrie, was written by Goebel Reeves.
