As a practicing genealogist I've known the difficulty and frustration Scott Zesch experienced in seeking information about his ancestor, Adolph Korn, who was abducted by an Indian raiding party in 1870 on the Texas frontier. Adolph Korn not only survived but delighted in the rough, nomadic life of his Comanche captors. For three years he fought alongside them against settlers, buffalo hunters, soldiers and other enemies that threatened their lifestyle. And, when forced to return to his parents, he was unable to fit into white society and became an eccentric who spent his final years as a near recluse.

'As for reviewing Denver Public Schools history curricula, Vendegnia said: "We can't rewrite history. That would be like asking God to rewrite the Bible."'
I have to wonder, is George Vendegnia really so stupendously ignorant, or is he just quoted that way?

Firstly, the dumbass states, "We can't rewrite history." George, if you're reading this, and I know you might be, seeing as you like to check out the opposition's position, there really is no such thing as 'history', you know; just the past, documented from the point of view, and in the interest of, those with the power and means of monopolising whatever medium they can use.

A rewrite isn't necessary, simply an inclusion of what has been omitted. People are then free to draw their own conclusions, which they aren't able to do when faced with only half a tale.

Secondly, God, as omnipresent and talented as he no doubt is, did not write the Bible. It is a collection of stories, written by 'historians' of the time.

Anyway, I'm waiting, with baited breath and anticipation, to see this splendid spectacle of Italian culture parade by me tomorrow. I'm positively peaqued with excitement at the prospect of seeing floats laden with the results of your's and your compatriates hard word - opera, wine, cuisine, architecture, philosophy, language, literature, etc. etc. There's so much more to being Italian than having a shindig for a guy who got lost, but something tells me that neither your conviction, nor imagination, stretches that far.
