    This generation is rewriting history. One thing I'm sure of--the new history will be misspelled, and have no punctuation.

    How right you are Jane. I'm glad I'm 'old school' and still know how to spell and punctuate properly.

    Lets see, if its proper woke then it can't be His or Hers story :worried:

    Story on it's own don't make any sense so it needs a new word altogether :suspicious:

    Can't use black or white :rolleyes:

    Wonder what George Orwell would have made of it?

    Past untruths?

    You are so right Jane, but there will be other shortcomings as well, I suspect. Chuckle.

    I think many layers of meaning are lost in these re-writes. But they can be useful too. Witness Pepper, who needs a good story to tell my wife about her terra cotta pot. I have never seen a dog carry a pot. Shards all around the house. Oh well we have 30 minutes to huddle before B comes home
