For John, BLUF: The past is a bog in which we can be trapped and killed. Nothing to see here; just move along.
Here is the sub-headline:
American Library Association changes award name after examining ‘expressions of stereotypical attitudes’ in books
From The Guardian, by the Associated Press in Chicago, 24 June 2018.
At some level I don't care. I didn't read the Little House on the Prairie series. I read My Ántonia in school. But, maybe it wasn't a real children's book, what with the burial of the suicide at the crossroads discussion.
This is why we need to be careful about naming public buildings and the like after living people. When we are digging up the dead and desecrating their graves in the name of Presentism, how much more risky is commemorating the living?
Hat tip to the InstaPundit.
