From the Washington Post:
A Dec. 8 article on Bernard B. Kerik's nomination as secretary of homeland security misstated the reason he has not commented on allegations about him. Custom, rather than formal rules, prevents him from making such statements before his confirmation hearings. Also, a Dec. 4 article incorrectly described Kerik's bachelor's degree from Empire State College as "mail-order." He earned the degree by taking correspondence courses.
