A retraction concerning the Mexican work ethic

Dear Hannah,

St. Augustine used to publish a series of yearly retractions, and I think it would be wise for me to do the same.  If anyone's going to be a man of learning, he must also be a man of unlearning.  Or to put it another way, if he's going to learn better ways to think of things, that means he has to get rid of the worse.  And if he's got any humility at all, he has to admit it when he was wrong.
