Thank you for publishing Howard's photo online. But there's been some mistake. Even a cursory glance at the picture will show that Howard does not have curly black hair or a full black beard. If he has a scar on his cheek, I never noticed it. Please correct the verbal description and publish this, along with the photo, in next week's print edition.
