It's NOT that people don't pay attention to history; rather how history is interpreted by many who read it r write it.

So, what is the thread about, Phillip?

The return of the Khmer Rouge?

Well, if that's supposed to be it, I quit as soon as they presented William Colby as a commentator. He died 18 years ago. An old current affairs program isn't history, Phillip... not in the sense that we study history.... its history in the sense that yesterday's newspaper is history.

Do us a favour.... how about studying communication for a while?
