Lot of assumptions in the article, but it's not a bit surprising. My 10-year-old son asked this morning why all of his teachers thought the Civil War was strictly about slavery. . The Georgia Declaration of Secession : "For the last ten years we have had numerous and serious causes of complaint aga...

Blood Meridian has to be one of the most brutal books I have read. Some of the historical similarities and comparisons to what went on there back then are down right scary.
