Correction: GM IPO story

In an Oct. 13 story about the General Motors initial public stock offering, The Associated Press erroneously implied that the company is selling common shares to the public. Common shares are sold by GM's stockholders, not the company. GM is selling preferred shares, as explained elsewhere in the story.
