Who won or lost?


October 24, 2019

Jim Elliott, I liked your article in this week’s paper titled “Why Columbus?” (Oct. 17 Ledger) It’s true the European invaders did inadvertently introduce Smallpox and measles to the native inhabitants. However, you forgot to mention that in return they were gifted with the curse of tobacco and syphilis. In the long run I don’t know who won or lost in that exchange.
