And you thought history was boring(Reading in the bathroom)

As I was reading the American Patriot's Almanac in the bathroom this morning,I came across the advertisements used to recruit riders for the Pony Express,(the beginnings of express mail...)It reads like this "Wanted: Young, skinny, wiry fellows not over 18. Must be expert riders willing to face death daily. Orphans preferred." Chew on that a minute. There are stories hiding in that sentence.

P.S. it just struck me that history is just that. Stories. His Story. History.

Ha that's great. I'd love for a job description like that to come about today. People would have a fit about how politically incorrect it is.
