|My one concern is in the public's ignorance of historical fact. Often I converse with someone who has seen a dash of fact, mixed with gallons of fiction, and has taken it for the real story. It doesn't affect someone like myself because I have a base of knowledge to judge such things by. But just think how our history may be distorted if the current trend towards historical illiteracy continues...imagine 100 years from now...."Okay dudes....uhh I mean class....today we are gonna discuss how Tom Hanks saved private Ryan and won...ummm...that war thing that happened...uhhh like sometime way back in the days when people read books and stuff."
