I found Scott’s article interesting and informative. I do not think he will care but just in case he is the type of person who does believe in lifelong learning and collegiality, I thought I would share my thought about why I was offended. I would think a historian would understand the concept of trigger words that offend groups of people and indicate prejudice. Such as when he wrote, “gun nuts.”
