So here's a correction to the article on what went down at Tuesday night's forum in Mattapan:

Boston Police say a cook at Flames, 663 Morton St. in Mattapan, ended an argument in the kitchen Saturday afternoon by plunging a knife into another cook's stomach.
The victim was taken to a local hospital and is expected to recover. Wellesley Clarke, 55, was charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.
