I would like to point out that I am not the half brother of Eric Claridge, as stated in Peter Margasak’s article about Shrimp Boat [The Meter, August 27]. I am his full-blood brother. We share the same parents, Robert Schneller and Jacqueline Claridge. I have no idea where Mr. Margasak came up with the notion that we are half brothers. It is rather upsetting to me to be represented this way in your paper.

If it is possible I would truly appreciate a printed correction of this matter.

Ian Schneller

I apologize for the error.
