—And then write approximately 200 words, in which you relate the Enola Gay controversy to our class discussions on museums, exhibits, and official and unofficial stories. Be sure to read the posts of your classmates who blog before you, and try to avoid the “echo chamber” of agreement that we criticized last week. In other words, practice paying attention to the ongoing discussion and then saying something new about the topic!
