Dear Editor,

Please publicize the below "error" meriting the correction that mine
was denied:

• Because of an editing error, an obituary on Sunday and in some
copies on Monday about Mel Gussow, a theater critic and reporter for
The New York Times, referred incorrectly to the Greenwich Village house next to his that was destroyed in 1970 by explosives belonging to the radical political group the Weathermen. The building was a town house, not a brownstone.
