Another Shout Out to my AP US History Teacher

Who taught me that history is an ongoing process, and that ideas and “facts” are a matter of perception.  The authors of this dedicated-to-the-book site put together a really cool prototype of this concept, in their twelve volume chronicle of the changing history of the Iraq War, as captured in edits to the Wikipedia definition.

As long as we’re kicking around history, Shorpy has some cool pictures today of 1930s urbanity – Chicago, Savannah.  Here’s one that makes me miss trains.

Commuters: 1907
