Re: Sinclair Timeline
I recognized the Satayana quote and would have been delighted to have
(jovially) made someone hoist on their own "tweak the Americans"
petard.... but you were a faster draw on your keyboard. than little me.
I heartily endorse your "baby and bathwater" analogy.... things have been
fairly civil recently but there have been times over the past year or so
when I thought History had become a blood sport.
I am quite happy to read errors and see them discussed/debated/corrected. I
am less interested in "purity" and arguments toward such a thing. History,
like life, is a work in progress. Some folks are more advanced in particular
parts of one or the other than I may be, but you can bet your boots that I
am better at something else. It pays well for all concerned to come to
both pursuits with humility and thanks and generosity.
I am gonna cry in a minute....
There, I feel much better now
