I have been horribly remiss in not pointing out to my readers the History Carnivals: #1, #2, and now, #3. Erroneously, I assume that everyone reads the same blogs I do and, hence, knows all these bits. What a dunce I am.
If you like this sort of stuff, and I have been accused of over-indulgence here, I urge you to set aside some time this weekend and read these great entries. And let no man or woman tell you that the blogging world is nothing but a political echo chamber. Little do they know.
