And Speaking of History…

Andrew at Here in Van Nuys has posted a list of some of the History Channel’s latest contributions to historical understanding.  Pretty pathetic.  If I were History, I’d sue to get my name back. For example:

How William Shatner Changed the World
An Alien History of Planet Earth
Star Wars: Empire of Dreams
“Jaws”

The whole post is worth reading, but keep the Xanax nearby.  “Those who cannot learn from history are condemned to repeat it?”  Maybe we need to revise that to, “Those who cannot watch the History Channel are condemned to watch Star Trek repeats.”
