standing letters

I understand that letters to the editor are opinions but they should not ignore facts.

Antonio P. Trebisacci claims that Columbus discovered America. Columbus never stepped foot here.

As the author of this letter I just wanted to say that after reading Trebisacci's letter again, I see that I am technically in error. Mr. Trebisacci quoted Mr. Coduri in saying that Columbus discovered America.

Also, I would not have chosen 'Trebisacci needs a history lesson' as a headline. And for what it's worth, I don't think the statue should be taken down but should have sufficient information on a plaque.
