The old, weird guy is finally off the plaza (NCJ Daily, March 14).

I woke up this morning with those words in my head and couldn't quite believe that the statue's removal had really come to pass. I grew up in Trinidad and the statue's presence seemed as all pervasive as fog in coastal Humboldt. Thanks to climate change, foggy days are giving way to more days of sunshine. Thanks to the hard-work, time and persistence of myriad people, the McKinley statue is finding its home in another place.

Hail to progress!

Emily Morris, McKinleyville
