Wisdom in two sentences

Paul Greenberg's CV is impressive - Pulitzer Prize winner, editorial page editor of the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette and the man who coined the phrase "Slick Willie."
In two sentences at the end of his June 7 column, which dealt with battles over wills and massive bequests, Greenberg hits the proverbial grand slam about contemporary attitudes of the left on both sides of the border...
Respect and disrespect for the past are really a kind of gratitude or ingratitude for those who have come before us. And a society that shows no regard for its past may not have much of a future, either.
All due credit to Mr. Greenberg.
