Slave Ties
The Chicago Sun-Times is tripping over themselves this morning with a story on Lehman Bros. ties to slavery. The firm is the first company to do business with Chicago that's admitted ties to slavery.

The story described the incident as an "embarrassing disclosure" by the firm.

Why is it so embarrassing. It's history. It happened by the founders of the firm nearly 15 decades ago.

My only problem with this is the attitude that goes with it. If it keeps up it will make it even harder to research history, not easier.
