History


I don't think I liked my history teachers throughout Middle and High School. Just some random thoughts again.

History is merely gossip. ~Oscar Wilde, Lady Windermere's Fan
Isn't it amazing the way the future succeeds in creating an appropriate past? ~John Leonard
Radical historians now the tell the story of Thanksgiving from the point of view of the turkey. ~Mason Cooley
The historian amputates reality. ~Gaetano Salvemini, Historian and Scientist
History is a pack of lies about events that never happened told by people who weren't there.
~George Santayana


My Favorites

He who controls the past
commands the future. He who commands the future conquers the past.
~George
Orwell

History
is written by the victors.
~Winston Churchill

History is a myth that men agree to
believe.

~Napoleon

"Juan" informed me today, via Instant Messaging, that he and Jennifer are expecting a girl and boy. I'm so exited for them. We talked about their potential names. At the top of the hypothetical list was Jack and Jill or Julius and Ethel (Rosenberg) . We also received a book from him yesterday that was published out of his Ethnic Studies Program at San Francisco State. He was the Editor in Chief as well as a contributor of it. It was very professional. It brought back memories of College. Yo soy... Chicano.
