Buried down towards the bottom of the Letters in this week's Village Voice:
In our March 1-7 issue, we published a cover story entitled "Do You Wanna Kiss Me?" All of the information in the story relating to Steve Lookner was false and completely fabricated. Lookner never made a trip like the one described in the article, never said the quotes attributed to him, and never performed any of the actions that were portrayed. We apologize to Steve Lookner for this story.
We also apologize to our readers for bringing up this issue weeks and weeks after the fact. In addition, we'd like to apologize to Lookner's lawyers for waiting so long to post this correction and, again, another apology to Lookner for any hourly legal fees possibly incurred by our decision to draw this out for two inexplicable months.
