In Mark Holcomb's review of Robot Stories ["Aye, Robot: What's Human," February 11-17], the name of the film's editor, Stephanie Sterner, was misspelled.
The last line of Elliott Stein's "Mac and Cheese" [February 18-24], on Orson Welles's Macbeth and Othello, was inadvertently deleted. The final sentence should read: "He seems miscast as Othello, while Micheál MacLiammóir delivers a subtly insinuating performance as an Iago whose anger and jealousy, it is hinted, are motivated by feelings of sexual incapacity."
Due to an editing error, a critical fact in Wayne Barrett's story was inaccurately reported last week ["Sleeping With the GOP," February 4-10]. Roger Stone's name was substituted for Charles Halloran's in a sentence about payments from the campaign. Halloran, not Stone, collected nearly $5,000 in expense reimbursement. The campaign owes Halloran, not Stone, $50,000 through December 31. It's the only time Halloran, not Stone, can recall running a campaign on trust. As the story reported elsewhere, Stone's services were "donated," a potentially illegal "in-kind contribution from a professional consultant."
Also, Wayne Berman is not a registered lobbyist of the Carlyle Group, as reported in the same piece. Common Cause described him as "lobbying for Carlyle," but was apparently referring to the seven-figure finders fee Berman was paid by Carlyle for pension-fund placement. Also, George H.W. Bush left Carlyle late last year. Tommy Hallissey was inadvertently left off the research credit for this story.
Robert Sietsema's film review of Eat This New York [January 28-February 3] erroneously mentions that the Brooklyn restaurant Moto closed after a few months; the restaurant is still open. The review also incorrectly states that the film ignores the events of 9-11. In fact, Daniel Boulud mentions it in an interview, and the film contains footage of restaurants donating food to rescue workers.
On page 48 of the January 21-27 issue, the William Eggleston photo should have been credited to: William Eggleston/courtesy of Cheim & Reid, New York. (photo not on villagevoice.com)
In that same issue the photo on page 26 was miscredited. The credit should have read: Frances M. Roberts. (photo not on villagevoice.com)
In his review of of the film Eat This New York (January 28 - February 3, 2004), a documentary about a Brooklyn eatery called Moto, Robert Sietsema writes: "the restaurant closed a few months later." It is still open.
The original meaning of a sentence in Eva Yaa Asantewaa's review of Esse Aficionado (December 17-23) was altered during the editing process. It should have read, "They have a certain obsession with making and unmaking spatial patterns, and they traffic in mannequin-like isolations and eccentric lighting cues."
In the story "The New Electable Howard Dean" (December 17-23), meetup.com was mistakenly referred to as a "liberal group." Meetup is a nonpartisan, commercial venture. The Voice regrets the error.
Wayne Barrett's "Way to Go, Joe" [May 7-13] incorrectly stated that Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver had attended a May 3 education rally in Albany. In fact, Silver was observing the Sabbath that Saturday and expressed his support through a videotaped speech. The Voice apologizes for the error.
