Today’s history lesson

640px-Joan_of_arc_miniature_gradedheresy. Her crime…? Donning men’s clothing after agreeing in a court of law not to do so. For her ‘crime’, she was burned at the stake. Wow! She was a national heroine but that didn’t matter. Nobody can argue that by today’s standards, the punishment certainly didn’t match the crime. Twenty-five years later, she was retried and found innocent and was cleared of all charges. Kind of a ‘do-over’ although it really didn’t help her much, did it. Anyway, we’re glad that times have changed. Everyone is welcome at Eastgate Pools, no matter how you are dressed. –Max]]>
