    (St. Patrick's Day Four and The Importance of History)

What to say about this late, great people's historian? He tells the story in episode 199 of how, after taking unremarkable jobs, his experience as a bombardier in WW2 radicalized him. On his return to USA, he went to college to study history. After gaining a Ph.D, he return to the site of his bombing raids in WW2 and carried out research, interviewing survivors of his bombings. One of our most popular speakers, he retold establishment history with great clarity, allowing so many to see how they had been lied to by the few.
