To The Daily Sun,
I didn’t know whether to laugh out loud, or cry, upon reading a letter in this past Saturday’s Daily Sun promoting an event at LRCC commemorating the 1917 Bolshevik (communist) revolution in Russia: "LRCC Professor E. Scott Cracraft will discuss the 100th Anniversary of the October Revolution in Russia on Nov, 8, 1917, when V.I. Lenin and the Bolsheviks took power.” It goes on to note that "Professor Cracraft teaches History and Social Sciences at LRCC. Russian history is one of his areas of academic interest.”
I can’t help but think that he celebrates the Russian event as a great positive and, if he was to do a presentation on the American July 4th Declaration, it would be to “enlighten” us and his students on what a sad occasion it was. I shudder at the thought of this guy “educating” our students in history and social sciences.
