Essay: Beware the pitfalls of rewriting history

It has been with no small amount of puzzlement that I have read the multitude of mea culpas gushing from some of my former newspaper colleagues, many of whom are sons of the South, decrying the sins of the South following the wanton murders of nine people in a church in Charleston, S.C., last month.
