Mistakes Were Made

by samdelbiaggio

In light of the article in last weeks Washington Post, Many errors spotted in Va. history texts, by Kevin Sieff some folks are shocked, shocked that big mistakes have made it into high school textbooks.  Granted the mistakes that were  made are egregious and shameful.  How do you get the years of World War I wrong?    I am moderately amused at the widespread shock.  Why are we still surprised by this?  This is why fact checkers have jobs.  Check and re-check your facts friends.  Just a reminder from someone that makes a lot of errors.
