An article by the Associated Press in yesterday's editions erroneously reported that Dan Rather was subpoenaed to appear as a witness in the trial of a third white man charged in the dragging death of a black man. In fact, Texas District Judge Joe Bob Golden signed a certificate at prosecutors' request asking a judge in New York to subpoena the CBS anchorman. The subpoena would require Rather to appear as a witness in Texas. No subpoena had been issued late yesterday.
The Sun regrets the error.
