Corrections from last week
The article, “Banning the video,” was written by Tanitha Kulsiri who is the Opinion Editor, not a staff writer.
The last person in Temple Talk was misidentified. Her name is Alinda Ruhinda, not Russell Johnson.
Lauren Dobkin, not Anthony Gilbert, took the back cover photo. The photo was of Temple vs. Dayton, not Florida.
