Restoring some balance to history
I hope readers gander at the shared links over to the right, but Bob's got a great post up that needs a billboard in Times Sqaure (where even the NYPD has flashing neon). There are a lot of bizarre notions going around about the nature of truth. It starts with the entirely reasonable observation that truth is socially constructed (to varying degrees we can argue about, noting that this arguing is an act of socially constructing something), but somehow ends up with the notion that anything Jews have ever said about Israel is necessarily a lie.
