Vail Daily letter: Historical inaccuracies
I am writing to highlight what I consider to be a glaring error on the part of the Vail Daily illustrations and graphics staff on the Presidents Day cover.
Both President Washington and President Lincoln are pictured with high-end performance skis.
Washington had skis, but they were homemade out of cherry wood. Lincoln was a snowboarder. I know you have heard of his passion for splitting rails, right? Proof, right there.
Clearly, you guys had a bit too much fun over the championships. Let’s pay a little more attention.
