Letter, 10/20: Bryan statue belongs in Lincoln

William Jennings Bryan statue

The city of Lincoln’s preferred spot for the William Jennings Bryan statue was on Centennial Mall, between L and M streets.

Just as Republican President William McKinley denied prospective Democratic presidential candidate William Jennings Bryan a chance to become a war hero in the Spanish-American War, Republican Gov. Pete Ricketts has denied him the placement of his statue in Lincoln, relegating it to Seward.

I am dismayed that politics seemingly prevails. Or perhaps its just poor judgment? Bring Bill home!

David A. Anderson, Lincoln
