History Wars claim millionth victim

REUTERS: Professor Henry Reynolds says that more than a million of his fellow Australian historians have now been killed as a result of the so-called "History Wars".

"There was a time when historians roamed the plains like sheep, but Keith Windschuttle and John Howard have decimated our stocks, sometimes raping historians, sometimes burning them, leaving little if any trace to be found," Professor Reynolds said.

"I am now among the last of my kind. When I walk down the street these days, unless you bump into Phillip Adams, you might never see another person wearing a skivvy or stroking their beard thoughtfully."

Professor Reynolds' article "The Genocide of Australian Historians," is soon to be published in the internationally respected journal, The Lancet. The Lancet is the world's most popular journal, being read by more than 3 billion people.

This culling was largely achieved by spiking the croissants at their local watering holes.

I saw the best minds of my generation destroyed by madness, starving
hysterical naked,
dragging themselves through the negro streets at dawn looking for an angry
fix,
angelheaded hipsters burning for the ancient heavenly connection to the
starry dynamo in the machinery of night,
who poverty and tatters and hollow-eyed and high sat up smoking in the
supernatural darkness of cold-water flats floating across the tops of
cities contemplating jazz,
who bared their brains to Heaven under the El and saw Mohammedan angels
staggering on tenement roofs illuminated,
who passed through universities with radiant cool eyes hallucinating Arkan-
sas and Blake-light tragedy among the scholars of war,
who were expelled from the academies for crazy & publishing obscene odes
on the windows of the skull,

Yeah, I did see them y'know.
