History is tricky...................................

Ben Carlson offers an interesting and read-worthy perspective on the study of history.   Reminds me of Winston Churchill's comment that history was going to be kind to him, because he was going to write it.

As a side note:   Carlson is quite a bit younger than your faithful blogger - he wasn't around for Apollo 11 and the first man on the  moon, I was 17.   Going back through the mists of memory, what amazed me most wasn't that we beat the Russians in the Space game, or even the landing on the moon.  What amazed me was the getting back.  Some pretty smart people accomplished some really brave and remarkable feats.  They all deserve to be honored by history.
