Correction

An editorial error was introduced into last week’s Feature “New York Health Care: It’s Rise and Murderous Fall”, on p. 20, the fourth paragraph. The Croton Aqueduct did not link New York City via the Hudson River to the Erie Canal. The text should have read: “Once the Erie Canal was built, New York City was linked, through the Hudson River northward, and then through the Erie Canal westward, to the Great Lakes, and thus the American Midwest.” We regret the confusion.
