The evil old facts of the evil old days DO serve us. In fact, remembering the rot behind the glamour is of intensest moral value. That's part of holding membership in the CGODC : we look at the wrinkles and are okay with every one of them. Glossing over is what serves us not. Writing a puff piece is different from inscribing history.
PS: I am not the President. Mother Flawless is. You & Merly are Archbishops. Miss Martha is Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco & Elbow-Length Gloves. I'm CIA: Cranky Intelligence Agency.
