Re: 2019 Philadelphia Eagles Thread

This is another example of spearing people because they just did what they were asked to do during the time they were living in. Miracles do happen. A post I can agree with JSO with.

Re: CS.com Book Club: Spring 2019

It’s ironic really - the whitewashing of flawed heroes of the new left is very similar to a LOT of previous “lost cause” scholarship on Confederate military types. It is no coincidence that books like Grant attracted so much attention roughly around the same time Confederate statues were being pull...
