Re "Broken finger on statue in California Capitol Rotunda follows late-night coin toss" (Capitol Alert, Sept. 2): Few understand the real meaning of the statue in the Capitol Rotunda, "Columbus' Last Appeal to Queen Isabella." It has little to do with Columbus. It is in fact about government funding of a successful special exploratory project; i.e., a monument to the budget.
