WELCOME BACK TO HISTORY IN THE NEWS. This blog has been down since 2009--yikes!--but I am back at it and will post here regularly, especially my opinion pieces that feature, of course, a "history in the news" theme.
I have also kept some of the "Best of DRS" articles archived here. I have written about 300 such articles over the years--this grouping is from 2008 and 2009.
Stay tuned---and watch for the release of my new book, "THE SHOOTING SALVATIONIST: J Frank Norris and the Murder Trial that Captivated America." It comes out (distributed by Random House) on July 12, 2011.
