Here is a little levity to end the work week. This little exchange from the Southern Heritage Preservation FB Group is worth a good laugh, but it’s also a reminder that many people simply do not understand the first thing about what is involved in historical research. The scholarship that historians produce is not the result of a process, but simply a reflection of personal bias and nefarious motives. It’s a wonderful reminder of why education matters.
Perhaps Dimitri Rotov will offer his legal services as prosecuting attorney.
