A news story posted online Oct. 28 reported that this year’s Commencement ceremony marks the 50th anniversary of President Harry Truman’s address to graduates. That number was based on incorrect information provided by a GW spokesperson. This year actually marks the 60th anniversary of his address.
The article “Gay politicians speak” (Oct. 13, p. 8) incorrectly stated that Maryland State Delegate Anne Kaiser was elected in 2003, that she revealed her sexuality this year and that she was working on the Medical Decision Making Act when she announced her sexuality. Kaiser was actually elected in 2002, came out last year and only testified about the act. The article also stated that Kaiser has 1,700 constituents; she has 110,000. The 1,700 figure refers to the number of constituents who received a newsletter announcing she was gay.
