where would you draw a line between history and current events? i see expertise in history and expertise in current events much differently. i would concede that historians have a unique perspective on current events as well as having a grip on current events helps to understand history. i once heard that anything that has happened in the last 25 years should not be called history because there is not enough perspective. Do you agree?

I think historians do have a better perspective of things. Hindsight, looking back, is always clearer than when you are in the middle of things
