To the Editors:
I am deeply disappointed that you chose to feature the story, “The Lesson,” by Laura Williams, in the Nov/Dec issue of the magazine. I was attracted by the winter photo, by the author bio which identified the couple as living in a nature reserve, and as an elementary school teacher, by the title itself. As I watched the story unfold before my eyes, I was horrified, not only by the violence and brutal treatment of the horse, but by the matter-of-fact answer to the author, “This here is just a horse.”
