For reasons unknown to me, one of the Crooks and Liars frontpagers decided that yesterday was a good day to reminisce about 1951.
Among the items from 1951 that were noted: The Cold War, MacArthur being relived of his command and the Kefauver Crime Committee Hearings.
Also remembered: “the trial of accused spies Julius and Ethel Rosenburg.”
Excuse me? “Accused”?
“Convicted” would be the proper term. By both a jury of their peers and by history.
I can understand the want to remember their brethren kindly, but let the factual record reign, please.
