". . . 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

The American Slave Coast on SiriusXm Satellite Radio

At SiriusXm Radio, Rockefeller Center,  November 30, 2015 -- The "Tell Me Everything" show, hosted by John Fugelsahn. This is how one is greeted when going on SiriusXm Insight Radio:

As we have dino phones (we're slowly being coerced by circumstance to change this condition), Neil, the producer very kindly offered to photograph the sign with our names and e-mail to our Publicist, so she could forward them to us. That's how cool people are at Sirius.
