". . . But the past does not exist independently from the present. Indeed, the past is only past because there is a present, just as I can point to something over there only because I am here. But nothing is inherently over there or here. In that sense, the past has no content. The past -- or more accurately, pastness -- is a position. Thus, in no way can we identify the past as past." p. 15

". . . But we may want to keep in mind that deeds and words are not as distinguishable as often we presume. History does not belong only to its narrators, professional or amateur. While some of us debate what history is or was, others take it into their own hands." p. 153

White Collar Au Revoir 2

I enjoyed the White Collar series so much.  The enjoyment was due to Neal Cafferty's friends. Each episode was like going to the perfect party. The finale was so good that I'm still enjoying it in retrospect.


Thank you, cast, writers and showrunners for providing six seasons of intelligent, adult, charming entertainment, and not least, the pitch perfect finale.
