Ah, but then the problem is the Scadian arrogance of claiming that we 
have achieved accuracy, and the what you see at an event is historical.  
If we would stop telling newbies that Scadian events are primary sources, 
and maybe invite them to read a book now and then, you wouldn't have this 
concern ;-) ???????


p.s., I'm glad you think virtue is also important, but I have to believe 
that demonstrations of courtesy linger in the mind longer then the image 
of a perfect Tudor gown.
