        Don't apologize.  I think this line of conversation is very
informative.  I am not clear on the history that people accept, though.
Who are these people?  I had a student tell me the other day that I
recruit students (for a seminar committee that I chair) on the basis of
affirmative action rather than on the basis of individual merit.  Now, have
*these* people accepted history, do you think?  Isn't this enough fact
based information?
