Dear Rift readers: These things happen. Corrections In Mexico Murmurations. On pg. 50 the Mexican television anchor Joaquín López Dóriga is referred to as Juan. The first Lady Angélica Rivera was referred to as Angélica María. A confusion I often make, given that I grew up watching both women on television.
