It’s strange to think back through the years of my education and history classes and to consider how true the words would ring through, truer and truer over time – history is written by the victors. So much of American history has been redacted and whitewashed to show the best side of our culture… Continue reading Faded Glory
In which I talk about Flint, Michigan's recent struggles.
Ya know, as a self-published author I can't say I haven't dipped into the pool of revisionist history, though I never got deeper than my ankles. I wanted to fix things, to clean things up, but as much as I have wanted to do more, I haven't. It's dangerous business, taking that time machine into… Continue reading Fixing the Past
