A story about the Pittsburgh steel industry refers to workers as "mill hunks" or "hunkies," which some listeners say is offensive. The term "emerging adulthood" is dismissed by a listener who says there's nothing "emerging" about him. Correction: A report about a mentally ill man in St. Thomas should have said he stole bike from Kmart, not Wal-Mart.
