IN WHICH WE’LL TRY AGAIN LATER

I just wrote a thousand words of a post (I wasn’t done) about how we study and teach history in this country, and about what it means to “exclude” people from “history,” and then I decided that the entire post was wrongheaded and deleted it.

Which means that I’ve been sitting here for an hour for, like, nothing.

I have work to do that I don’t want to do. I’m going to go play video games for a while and hopefully when I’m done I’ll have an idea about something else to blog about today. It’s not often that I spike a post, but I think it was the right call here even if it annoys me.

One thought on “IN WHICH WE’LL TRY AGAIN LATER

  1. I can’t count the number of times I’ve written a long, thoughtful, detailed answer on Quora, just to realize that I didn’t actually answer the question, or included an anecdote I felt iffy about sharing on the internet. I probably delete as many of my answers as I actually post.
