LET'S RE-WRITE HISTORY!
Once upon a time there was a group of conservatives who didn't like the way the world was turning. So they all got positions on the Texas State Board of Education. Because no one had shown much interest before and because the group had already gotten away with revisions of what had been, they decided to dare a bit more interference with things just to secure their positions in the future. That is how Thomas Jefferson, the issue of the separation of church and state, references to blacks and hispanics all but disappeared from our country's history texts! "Happy 1950!" on of them cried out to the others! "No," corrrected a second, "Happpy 1750" with a wink! Are we REALLY going to allow this to happen?
