My one concern is in the public's ignorance of historical fact. Often I converse with someone who has seen a dash of fact, mixed with gallons of fiction, and has taken it for the real story. It doesn't affect someone like myself because I have a base of knowledge to judge such things by. But just think how our history may be distorted if the current trend towards historical illiteracy continues...imagine 100 years from now...."Okay dudes....uhh I mean we are gonna discuss how Tom Hanks saved private Ryan and won...ummm...that war thing that happened...uhhh like sometime way back in the days when people read books and stuff."
