Small point of error in the lead editorial (The Daily Astorian, June 15). "We Americans have a difficult time relating to war beyond what we see in the movies or on television. Except for our Civil War - and only in the Southern states - and the attack of 9/11, American soil has not been ravaged."

You forgot that the British invaded the District of Columbia and burned the White House. Ravaged? Well, no, not really. But ravaged was used in the context of any military incursion into the United States.

Love your paper, political position and local coverage.
