Open letter to The Economist

May we please have a retraction and an apology on your part for the horrendous cover caption you subjected us to on your June 5th leader? At that time you said "Voters now have those five months to study them before making up their minds (and The Economist will be doing the same). But, on the face of it, this is the most impressive choice America has had for a very long time." Given that you have now had almost four months to study the candidates, do you still stand by your original estimation? Please redeem yourselves by either retracting your original statement, or by admitting that you were not really serious at the time and were simply indulging in some of that famous "Economist" whimsy!
Respectfully yours.
