The original Morris
In historical perspective, the shadow cast by Morris' post-2004 declarations of contrition might be lost. Despite his own acts of recantation, history will remember the original Morris, and his courageous research.
I was listening to the radio one evening. A retired IDF officer was talking about how Israel's first prime minister, David Ben-Gurion, had once asked him who killed Goliath. "Of course, David did," replied the IDF man. Ben-Gurion responded: "Read the Torah and you'll see that Elhanan was the one who killed Goliath." History, he added, attributes acts of heroism to persons who have power.
