Letter: Speaking of Being Wrong
To the Editor:
The newspaper got it wrong in the headline in the Dec. 22 World & Nation section: “If You’re Reading This, the Mayans Were Wrong.” As most rational people know, the Maya made no doomsday predictions.
The people who did make the predictions did real harm. They should be ashamed for terrorizing the naive and, worse, enabling unscrupulous people to exploit the naive.
That’s what I call wrong.
