Renaming History

Senior member of European investment bank has suggested that London changes name of Waterloo Station, because it might be "too offensive" for French and therefore impeding European integration. If the same principle is applied in the rest of Europe, all national history textbooks should be purged of every event that happened before few years ago; every manifestation that celebrates some ancient historic battle must be cancelled; Asterix comic books must be banned because they might be too offensive towards Italians etc. (Via Harry's Place.)
