This might be the oldest correction ever to appear in The Sun, and it's 98 years overdue. In last week's column about Oliver Otis Howard, the Civil War general and career Army officer who founded Howard University, I quoted The New York Times, which wrote at his death in 1909 that his passing marked the "extermination of all the ranking Army officers who commanded the Union armies during the Civil War." The Sun also repeated this inaccuracy in its news story on Howard's death. Rob Loskot, a faithful reader, wrote in an e-mail a few days later that Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain died in 1914, and that "General Howard may not have been the last ranking federal officer to have died."

A Reisterstown man accused of holding a woman against her will for more than a month pleaded guilty yesterday to two of nearly 40 charges against him in Carroll County Circuit Court. Standing in court yesterday in a bright-orange jumpsuit, William Thomas Parrish III, 26, pleaded guilty to one count of first-degree assault and a first-degree sex offense. He had also been charged with first- and second-degree rape, sodomy and false imprisonment. Judge Luke K.

A 25-year veteran Baltimore County police officer pleaded guilty yesterday in Carroll County Circuit Court to driving drunk on Christmas Eve. Sentencing for William E. White Jr., 48, of Eldersburg is scheduled for Aug. 22. White is assigned to the Woodlawn precinct, said Cpl. Vickie Warehime, a Baltimore County police spokeswoman. She declined to further discuss the officer because of a continuing internal affairs investigation. Under the terms of a plea bargain, White can request probation before judgment, but prosecutor David P. Daggett said he will argue for a suspended sentence.

As if "Tucker," "The Michael Richards Show" and "Cursed" weren't enough for one season, here comes NBC tonight with the premiere of yet another really bad sitcom, "DAG," starring Delta Burke and David Alan Grier. After two postponements for more retooling, the pilot for "DAG" looks worse than it originally did when I first saw it in July on the summer press tour - and it was awful then. This is a network that has truly lost its touch for comedy, and has been grasping at big-name stars instead of looking for fresh concepts and producers who can bring those ideas to life.

A Mount Airy contractor was convicted yesterday in Carroll County Circuit Court in the beating death last year of a National Science Foundation psychologist. A jury deliberated about 2 1/2 hours before returning guilty verdicts for first-degree murder and felony theft against Randall Henry Gerlach. Gerlach was also charged with stealing more than $300,000 from the victim, Rodney R. Cocking, 59, of Taylorsville. Senior Assistant State's Attorney David P. Daggett said he will seek a sentence of life without parole for Gerlach, 57. Judge Raymond E. Beck Sr. revoked Gerlach's bail -- which a judge reduced in August from $1 million to $150,000 -- and ordered a pre-sentencing investigation.
