The Ham In the Pan


4a_ci_last_ditch_chivalry_2094_cSo screamed the headlines yesterday as I battled fever and chills. The problem is that not only is that untrue, but the entire weeks events show us how we (corporately) can misinterpret history to our own advantage.

The old saying goes that “winners write the History Books,” but even that is no longer absolutely true. The New York Times ran an op-ed piece on Monday asking Which MLK Jr Are we Celebrating?”  Is he the social radical of the 1960’s? Or is he the Conservative icon of the 21st Century?

These two disparate and yet concurrent things are just a reminder that when we read history, if everything that we read agrees with our own bias and beliefs, then we either read it incorrectly (wrong) or we simply did not read it all. when

When Bradley Manning goes to be tonight, he will still be a coward. And a traitor.

  1. Thanks for reminding me about the story of the ham with the ends cut off. I have been thinking about the commandment, “Thou shall not have any other gods before me,” and how it relates to todays society. When Moses and the Apostles wrote down that message, the term gods not only referred to Baal, Osiris, and Jupiter but to also to people living and dead who were deified.
    When academia rejected the Judeo-Christian tradition, a void was created which was filled by giving imperfect mortals divine status. Martin Luther King Jr., Barack Obama, and Hillary Clinton are the way the truth and the light for many who are disdainful of traditional religion.
