Corrections: December 14, 2014 - NYTimes.com The Strategies column last Sunday, about how holiday retail sales may have been affected by recent demonstrations against racial injustice, referred incorrectly to the death of Eric Garner after a confrontation with the police on Staten Island. He died after being placed in a chokehold; he did not die in a shooting.

Sadly, I suspect that the author did think Garner was shot. Liberals live in a fog of myth through which the world is seldom visible.

Still in error. He wasn't placed in a choke hold, it was a "seat belt" hold that isn't as dangerous and is technically allowed by the NYPD.
