Corrections Box

In “Anthrax lecture explains elements of bioterrorism” from the Nov. 2 issue of The Lawrentian, there were several factual inaccuracies. First, anthrax is a bacterium, not a virus. Second, Professor Perrault said “Antibiotics will not fight the virus” referring to the small pox virus, not anthrax. Finally, constant usage of antibiotics can result in stronger strains of bacteria, not viruses as reported. Also in the Nov. 2 issue, Brian Zaander contributed to the K-Pax review (“Spacey film lacks a lesson, but brings a good performance from Kevin”). The Lawrentian regrets these errors.
