Regarding the May 1 front-page article “Cannibalism found in Jamestown”:

There are some things I would rather not know. Many of us probably would prefer to dream that the Jamestown settlers were heroic at all times, despite the difficulties.

I can remember the propaganda during World War II that made us feel that our culture was totally right and the “enemy” was totally wrong.

I guess the “seekers of truth” should be respected, regardless of where the truth leads. But why was The Post compelled to emphasize that depressing research with such a large headline and picture on the front page?
