A slight correction--while I did participate in some parts of that
discussion, I don't remember making that point precisely. I believe
someone else the specifics of high school history books. My point was
just about the constructed nature of history. I wish I could reassign
credit where it is due, but I've deleted much of the previous messages re
this topic.
