Corrections #2: Newark

Today's NYT corrections inform us that:
Because of editing errors, an article on Friday about a gathering of representatives from the various Newarks around the world, held this year in New Jersey, referred incorrectly at one point in some copies to the mayor of Newark, N.J., and at another point misidentified the location of an exhibition. As noted elsewhere in the article, the mayor is Mr. James, not Mr. Sharpe; the exhibition is at the Newark Public Library, not the Newark Museum.

Other errors led to the misidentification of the nature of the gathering.
The representatives from the other Newarks were sent as delegates to petition New Jersey's Newark to change its name. The Int'l Newark League suggested "Gehenna," "Hellhole," and "Unpleasantville." Newark officials are mulling over those and other appropriate options.
