April 09, 2004

Friday, April 9 in San Antonio

I spent a fair amount of time at the Alamo, just because it was interesting to watch others take in the way the history of the place was presented to them. I have this running dialogue about “truth” – what is the truth and what is the packaging (mediation) that someone wants me to buy as the truth. From what I’ve read the fight over the Alamo has way more to do with illegal squatters rebelling over the sovereign nations view of them as undesirables and the goal of removing them from their illegally occupied lands – in other words it was about money and fealty. Which has very little to do with the desire for “freedom and independence” that is usually presented as the reason the Texicans fought for the Alamo. LOL What can I say there are reasons I finally became an academic, one of which is that search for truth. LOL As though I will find it somewhere.
