Your right

Editor’s note: The following letter was written by a Northern Star employee. It represents the views of an individual and not the staff.

I am writing in response to Jamey Heckman’s letter to the editor in Tuesday’s Northern Star.

First, I would like to say that, as one of the people responsible for such ads as the one in question, that I take responsibility for such errors slipping through the cracks and making it to print. I would also like to thank Jamey Heckman for pointing such mistakes out, but I do believe that such errors apparent to us in a more polite and businesslike fashion.

Second, I would like to go to the beginning of your letter. You’re extrapolating your point beyond belief. To think that an error slipping through the cracks and going to print has anything to do with the Japanese thinking that Americans are illiterate is ridiculous.

Jamey, I would like to know your proficiency in math or science. I see that you are an English major so I will not question your expertise in that field. If I may use a passage out of the Bible, ” Let anyone who has not sinned throw the first stone.” If I may relate this to my own letter, let anyone who is perfect judge the rest.

Thank you for correcting our mistake.
