Mary Mattingly’s Dry Season paints a bleak picture of Earth's future.
An article last Sunday about politicians' choice of clothing while campaigning referred incorrectly to the role of Naomi Wolf in Al Gore's 2000 presidential campaign. She was a consultant on women's issue and youth outreach to young voters; she was not Mr. Gore's image consultant and was not involved in his decision to wear earth-toned clothing.Funny, you know what doesn't have a correction? For starters, any number of Maureen Dowd columns over the years referring to Wolf as Gore's earth-toner. And also this: the initial 1999 Time-magazine article uncovering Wolf's role with the Gore campaign — in which one campaign official described her as a "wardrobe consultant."

A small fire on the third floor of the Maritime Hotel drew a phalanx of fire trucks to meatpacking destination Saturday night, and the equipment and firefighters did a nice job of extinguishing Absolut and Flavorpill's after-party for Al Gore's Live Earth concert, going on at the hotel. A source confirmed late yesterday that it was an electrical fire, quickly put out, that brought four trucks, all with ladders extended to the third floor and filled with men in uniform, to Ninth Avenue. It was enough to make the concert's performers — already exhausted from sun exposure and a twelve-hour day — decide it wasn't worth the effort to get into the party. (We spotted only Broadway types there: Xanadu's Cheyenne Jackson and Legally Blonde's Laura Bell Bundy.) Looking back, we remember that the lack of stars did perplex us for a moment, before we decided not to care. We also remember that we spotted some firemen near the bathroom line, and we asked hotel management what they were doing there. "Oh, those are the strippers," we were told. —Jada Yuan Earlier: How Green Was Your Live Earth?
