I read today that a Mr. Herr from Catonsville gave his interpretation of history about the Talbot Boys statue. The statue is in honor of the Talbot County men who lost their lives in war. I find the statue of a slave offensive. As far as I know, no one in my family ever owned a slave and slavery goes back to biblical times.

My suggestion to Mr. Herr is if the statue bothers you, don't come here. Go back to Baltimore and get rid of the rats around the harbor. Decrease the Bay Bridge traffic and save your toll.

It amazes me that people come to Talbot County after falling in love with our lifestyle then criticize it. They want to change our way of living to meet their style.

I'm a veteran. I am a native and lifelong resident of Talbot County. I love it the way it's always been. I respect those who gave their lives for a cause that was the culture at that time.
