Letter to the editor: Letter-writer regrets lead sentence

My letter published in this paper on July 2 was off base in its opening.
The opening began: “Vermont’s budget standoff has ended. Our legislators fought hard for a tax increase, and they won.” That is an unfair characterization, and I apologize for any suggestion that the Legislature’s goal was a tax increase.
I wish I had started the paragraph by saying, “Vermont’s budget standoff has ended. Our legislators fought hard for their budget proposal, and they won, missing an opportunity to avoid a tax increase.”
I have flaws as a person, and I’m working on them. This one came from breaking one of Ann Landers’ rules.
