    The old atlases did not include the Americas. They do not belong in the Map Room. The old histories were full of omission and apologia over the European invasions of the Americas. They do not represent the wisdom of San Jose, and do not belong in the public pronouncements of who we are. The perspectives and artistry of the 20th century belong in a place of somber and humble reflection. Let us clear the space to announce a fuller, freer life, and restore the wisdom of the land.
