Corrected on June 13, 2012A lot of people wrote in to correct us when we compared Spain's banking matchmaker Angel Borges to a yenta. And they're right. We used the word improperly. Yenta comes from Yiddish and it means a busybody or a gossip. It's not someone who arranges marriages. The matchmaker in Fiddler on the Roof is indeed named Yenta. But that doesn't excuse our mistake. You can hear more about our yenta misadventure on Thursday's Morning Edition.

Corrected on May 31, 2012This story fails to note that the proposed legislation does include an exception for artwork taken by the Nazis.

Corrected on April 27, 2012The introduction to the audio version of this story overstated the number of Americans living in households with three or more generations.

Additionally, we said it was the "anniversary of the Big Green Monster," referring to Fenway Park. While Fenway has just turned 100 years old, the wall known as the Green Monster has been green only since 1947.

Corrected on February 22, 2012
As we reported, Arizona state Sen. Russell Pearce was the originator of the draft legislation that later became Arizona SB 1070. This story did not mean to suggest that the Corrections Corporation of America was the catalyst behind the law or that it took a corporate position in favor of the legislation.
In our 2010 broadcast piece we said: "Last December Arizona Sen. Russell Pearce sat in a hotel conference room with representatives from the Corrections Corporation of America and several dozen others. Together they drafted model legislation that was introduced into the Arizona Legislature two months later, almost word for word."
Although CCA did have a representative at the ALEC meeting where model legislation similar to 1070 was drafted, we didn't mean to suggest that CCA wrote the language.
Nov. 18, 2011 — In the introduction to the radio version of this story, we said that the legislation that became the Arizona immigration law (SB 1070) was drafted at a meeting of the American Legislative Council, or ALEC. The introduction should have made a clearer distinction between drafting the Arizona bill and ALEC's role in turning it into "model" legislation to be submitted in states across the country.
