Redefinition: it's not just for science any more

Turns out that it's not just the definition of science that's in trouble (see next post down), but history itself is being rewritten. Where, China? Russia? No, Virginia, where school textbooks take the safest tack in handling the delicate subjects of the Civil War and Reconstruction, by omitting them entirely. Backward, ho, from the Enlightenment into the Dark Ages!
