Reading about people like Wilentz make me reconsider a college education for my son. Eddie Sean Wilentz is unhappy. A professor of history at Princeton, he complains that Americans are reading too much history this Fourth of July. Or rather the wrong kind of history. Namely, not his.

Your son will encounter people like Wilentz looong before college. Profesors can only take advantage of (through influence) ignorant students.

Arm him with the correct history, then he will be able to pass a history class in college without believing everything the prof says. It works for me.

I got outta High School a few years back. History has been shredded. I don't belive that John Adams was a nut case. The only way I feel that I survived with out taking it to much to heart was I watched the History Channel. I found most of it to be good and true. (Tales of the Gun...Best show ever!!!)

Yeah, I know. That's one reason why we send him to a small private school. We personally know the entire admistrative staff and most of the teachers. The wife is on the personell committe (hiring and firing). Not much gets by her. Eddie
