In reporting on the Nebraska stop of a national speaking tour by U.S. president George Bush to promote the administrations proposals to reform Social Security, the article U.S. rulers campaign for cuts in social wage in the February 21 issue incorrectly stated that Bush spoke at the University of Nebraska. The actual location was the Qwest Center, a large convention center in downtown Omaha. The article also said that Senator Ben Nelson is the only Democrat in the U.S. Senate to side with Bush so far on Social Security reform… Nelson was the only Democrat to decline to sign a letter to Bush opposing the administrations proposals and has said he is willing to hear the president out. But following a meeting with Bush on the Omaha stop, Nelson said he needs to see more details before deciding whether to back the proposal, the Omaha World Herald reported.
