Memorial Day

Some holiday weekends give opportunity to reflect on the history of a country. Unfortunately, the historiography often depends only on the description of wars. Celebrations focus on hero-worship. Skepticism is rarely practiced. “The Indians who first discovered this Columbus, made a discovery that would prove to be very uncomfortable …” once remarked my favorite writer G.C. Lichtenberg (1742-1799).
