Corrections: Names and Numbers

It's the Ft. Worth, not Austin, Star-Telegram, Austin's paper is the American-Statesman. D'oh. (See Corrections: Ammo Shortage.)

Several readers noticed ACORN's new name didn't match its acronym (see "Acorn Still Funded."). Author friend Charly Gullett explains, "At the time of writing, ACORN was struggling with what to re-name itself. CCI was and is the financial laundering arm of the organization and was considered at the time a contender for the new name. In fact they seem to have been waylaid in this re-naming effort by the recent video scandals. The name now on paper legally for the international arm (but not yet on the web) is Community Organizers International." Check out Charly's new book on overturning America's socialists, "Cooking Alinsky's Goose."

I had complained about the federal proposal to estimate the entire economy to within 1/4 percent 12 years from now (see "Impossibly Longrange Predictions"). One astute reader gripes that he would think, "Getting an economic prediction right to within 1/4 percent for 12 minutes from now would be quite an accomplishment for a government office." I stand humbled.
