I agree. Had a one sided debate with a guy who's library of knowledge came from wild west movies. Poor thing could only resort to insults. Americans have been placed behind a wall of superficial knowledge and they hate it pointed out to them.

Did you know that Clint Eastwood got lynched, but survived and killed the guys who tried to lynch him? That's crazy. He also was a rapist that was poisoned with mushrooms by a bunch of women he was raping.

True story. Thank god for those wild west documentaries.

I read a great book by someone who lived the old west. It is Through the Shadows with O. Henry, by Al Jennings. Jennings was a train robber and he spend time in prison with William Sydney Porter, known to the literary world as O. Henry. Another great recent read was Fighting Indian Wars: True Tales of Wild Frontiers, by E. A. Brininstool.

The second story of the Library's destruction is more popular, thanks primarily to Edward Gibbon's "The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire". But the story is also a tad more complex. Theophilus was Patriarch of Alexandria from 385 to 412 AD. During his reign the Temple of Serapis was converted into a Christian Church (probably around 391 AD) and it is likely that many documents were destroyed then. The Temple of Serapis was estimated to hold about ten percent of the overall Library of Alexandria's holdings
