Correction: A photo caption in the Nov. 1 edition of the Daily incorrectly reported that the Dow Chemical Company was involved in the Bhopal disaster of 1984. The caption should have said that Union Carbide was the company that accidentally released methyl isocyanate into the air. Union Carbide later sold its Indian plants to Dow Chemical, and Dow has repeatedly said that the former owner of the plant took care of any financial obligations from the accident.
