I'm a semi-retired Editor. I have been a newspaper and magazine Journalist since 1982. The study of Ancient History is one of my greatest passions, and in my life's experiences I've learned at least one very valuable lesson, about history and myself: One must finally reconcile what is real in the heart and the nonsense that comes out of our mouths, our pens and our keyboards.

Cave Art Found in Texas

My wife Kerri, founded these drawings on a small cave in West Texas. We haven't notified any particular archaeological foundation, or anyone  related to the discovery of significant, ancient drawings.

There is good reason for that. Think of the environmental impact, for one.

We also thought it should be left to posterity, rather than trampled by the would-be scientific community, or EPA officials who might possibly influence other governmental agencies, to keep the public from enjoying the drawings. Ultimately, we believe the expression of the moment ought to be free of encumbrances caused by bureaucratic idiots....
By the way - nothing is misspelled in the above paragraphs - despite what seems to be obvious.

Is there a mystery here?

The Study of History Advances Society

French Poet and philosopher Alphonse de Lamartine said, "History teaches everything, including the future."
George Bernard Shaw said, "We learn from history that man can never learn anything from history."

I love studying and sometimes teaching history. I tend to agree more with the French Poet, and philosopher, Alphonse de Lamartine. At the same time I am quite aware that our world today seems to have completely ignored the lessons of history. The list is too long to add here of all that has been forgotten; suffice it to say that for those who have taken to heart the lessons of history, accolades to you. For those who haven't, shame on you!
