Aaron D. Wolf’s portrayal of the rabble in New Orleans jeering at General Lee’s dishonored image (“The Discarded Image,” Heresies, July) conjures a scene from C.S. Lewis’s The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe: A mob of repulsive scum, all manner of beasties and boggles, heap inane insults on the bound Lion, whose nobility they can in no wise imagine, much less comprehend. The passion of the South continues.
Thank you, Mr. Wolf and Chronicles, for being on the right side of humanity.
—The Rev. Steven B. Allen
