A shocking misnomer

Food for Thought

I confess to being an Antiques Roadshow addict. It’s not that I am an avid antiques collector, for I seldom actually buy antiques, although I enjoy browsing through the shops with collections of those relics from the past. The stories that go with them tend to intrigue me, even though the people who bring their treasures to the program often have incomplete or erroneous tales to tell about the items. Part of it, I guess, is that the history of anything is a part of the history of mankind, of the world, of western civilization, of ourselves.
