    The sentence beginning at the bottom of page 386 should read: “If A and B are perfectly U-comparable and B does not cause Y, then a null finding of B-Y means that the A-Y association is unbiased.”

    In the published version, the phrase “null finding of B-Y” was written incorrectly as “null finding of A-N.”
