A sentence in Rick Batt’s op-ed “Putting a straight face on MaineCare payments” (Feb. 24) incorrectly referred to Enron’s accounting practices as “technically legal.” The correct sentence should have read:

“Maine’s strategy for obscuring its debt is technically not illegal the way Enron’s was, but it is still unethical and terrible public policy.” It was an editing error.
