Go Ahead. Erase History. See if I care

Do you ever catch yourself in a place totally random on the internet and wonder:
"How in the world did I get here?"
It happened today.
I made it here.
Now I had heard about Huck Fin getting re-vamped. You know. The "N" word getting taken out
And a few other things changed.
Side Bar : I don't like the "N" word. I think it's horrible
Now people I know books are changed all the time.
Shortened, dummied up. Whatever.
But this new book is going to be what is taught in school???
If we leave out vital parts of history while teaching our children...
they will never learn from it.
But I liked the post.
It is something to think about.
