An article in the Maryland section yesterday mischaracterized a letter sent by then-Rep. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. to the Internal Revenue Service regarding the NAACP. Ehrlich asked the IRS to respond to a constituent complaint that the civil rights organization had become too political and asked that his office receive a copy of the response. He did not raise the allegation himself in the letter.

A quotation in a Today article yesterday about was incorrect. The quote, from Evan Serpick of Rolling Stone, should have read: "Their bread and butter is the scads of indie rock bands. I think they have more credibility than anybody else for their world."

The Sun regrets the errors.
