The telephone number given for the national dating service ("Here and There," February 2002) was incorrect. The correct number is (925) 586-5211.
An editing error occurred at the end of the last sentence in the first paragraph of the article "U.S. Supreme Court Rules on ADA Again," (February 2002). There, and elsewhere in the article, the issue is described as involving whether Ms. Williams "was a qualified person with a disability, as defined by the ADA, and therefore, entitled to accommodation in the form of a change in her job duties under Title III of the act." The references to Title III are wrong. The article should have stated: Title I. We regret any confusion which may have resulted from the error.
The American Council of the Blind strives to increase the independence, security, equality of opportunity, and to improve quality of life for all blind and visually impaired people.
