Correcting goof-ups

Dear Editor:

Given the quantity of print that must be processed quickly, newspaper typos are inevitable and should normally be overlooked, but I want to correct two that cropped up in my letter on the proposed new art museum because neither was in the original, one is comic, and the other reverses the meaning.

A medieval representation of the solar system is an orrery, not an ornery, and the metal cage around it was graffitied (sprayed with graffiti), not gratified. There was nothing gratifying about trying to show visitors one of Aspen’s most alluring works of art, only to find it encased by – this time the word is apt – ugliness.
