Corrections for the Week of March 11 

Desley Brooks' involvement in the BART board of directors meeting and an art caption.

In our February 18 Seven Days column "Bart Cop Craziness," and in the February 13 blog post on which it was based, we erroniously wrote that Oakland City Councilwoman Desley Brooks led a mob of angry people as they took over a meeting of the BART board of directors. According to the San Francisco Chronicle, upon whose account our description relied, Brooks attended the meeting and argued with BART director Joel Keller, during which several members of the audience briefly charged Keller. But there is no evidence to suggest that Brooks was responsible for the crowd's actions.

In our February 25 Museum and Galleries pick, the work shown is "A Trapped Star Escapes," not "Self-Portrait for Video Interview."
