Reinterpreting History

Dear Editor: I was deeply saddened by The Tablet’s editorial (Aug. 16) joining the chorus of leftist fanatics and rubberstamping the desecration of a statue of General Robert E. Lee. Saddened because The Tablet has apparently hopped upon the bandwagon or, rather, the juggernaut of political correctness which now demands a Stalin-like, Mao-like revisionism of American history.
