High heels, Bush vs Stalin, and the face of Shakespeare.

David McCullough is out hawking his new book on the Wright Brothers, and in this interview he argues that good history is about people, “and people are the most interesting subject there is.”

Love high heel shoes? Here is a brief history of a shoe style that was originally meant for men.

Goodness. A new study shows that George W. Bush is ranked ahead of Stalin on a list of “villains” in history.

Is this the true face of Shakespeare? According to a 5 year study by a botanist it is. Yes, a botanist.

There is another good discussion going on over on Civil War Memory. This one on the absence of black soldiers in the grand review.
