NaBloPoMo 12 -- A Contest!
Apropos of a conversation over at Pilgrim's, today's post is in the order of a contest. Can't promise anything but glory, but oh, what glory it is. We were thinking ... people keep saying that we learn history so we can avoid making the mistakes our forefathers have made, but historians? We're like Rodney Dangerfield. We get no respect. I think that also makes us like the Cowardly Lion, which is probably more applicable. So... I've got a phrase or two, and am looking for someone to put them together in a cool and groovy kind of way so we can make T-shirts a la Cafe Press or some such. I'd also like about 5 volunteers for a panel of judges.
So here's the phrase:
"If we're all supposed to learn from history, why is it that no one ever listens to historians?"
If you don't like that one, we did have a couple of others for people to play with:
"Historians: ignore us at your peril"
"Historians: ignore us and people die"
What do you all think?
