Dear Editor: An important poem in last week’s Patriot, “I’m Not Charlie,” was wrongly attributed to another poet, Wallace Stevens. The poem was written by Downey poet Conney Williams.

Mr. Williams deserves to have the reading public know this is his poem, and his voice.

Thank you for setting the record straight.

Editor’s note: the Downey Patriot apologizes for the mistake.
