Letter to the editor

I commend President Price for acting to remove the statue of Robert E. Lee. He might reasonably have chosen a more cautious path, deferring the decision until a study committee could make a recommendation. Instead, by removing and preserving the statue now, President Price has created the conditions for a more honest, fruitful conversation about race and memory, free of the public pressure now accumulating around every piece of Confederate iconography.
