It’s official …

[Cross-posted at Revise and Dissent.]

... I'm a bad historian! No, well, actually, I have a post included in the latest Carnival of Bad History, which may or may not mean the same thing. Head on over to Hiram Hover's place and decide for yourself -- and while you're there, make sure you sample the other egregious ("Outstanding ... in one way or another", as Sir Humphrey Appleby once put it) examples on display.

  1. There is a rule that magicians don't give away their secrets. Surely there should be something similar for bloggers? I'll need a new set of adjectives to describe intriguing and thought-provoking papers if you keep revealing sources of ambivalent descriptions. :)

    Sorry Alun! You're right, something must be done about this problem immediately. May I humbly recommend that we set up an interblogmental committee with fairly broad terms of reference so that at the end of the day we would be in a position to think through all the implications and take a decision based on long-term considerations rather than rush prematurely into precipitate and possibly ill-conceived actions, that might well have severe and irrevocable repercussions?

    Thanks for the link to Carnival of Bad History; I've been searching for something like that!
