Clarification: A Page One story yesterday on the nomination of John G. Roberts Jr. to the Supreme Court quoted a prediction in National Journal magazine that Roberts would win Senate confirmation by a comfortable margin. The prediction was made by columnist Stuart Taylor Jr. and does not reflect the magazine's views.
Correction: Because of a reporting error, a story in the City & Region section last Thursday about a memorial service for Ruth Hickey Pesky, wife of Red Sox legend Johnny Pesky, gave the wrong title for family friend Tim Samway. Samway is a director of the BoSox Club, a fan organization.
