    I respect and admire historians. They—men and women who sift time’s flotsam and jetsam so that they can arrange in it a cohesive way—are a special breed. Their effort requires patience, intellect and often good fortune if it is to be successful. Despite my respect for historians, however, I do not believe that they are always the best voice for history, especially if one wants to understand what people were thinking or feeling at a given moment in time, or if one wants to understand what was happening in the multitude of little moments that fall between the big events that history usually records.

    I've contacting David to see if the originals are still available.
