Re “#History in 280 Characters” (feature, Oct. 23): The profession of history will have no more credibility than the screaming meemies on The View if it contents itself with making snarky remarks on Twitter. Writing for The New York Times is only a mark of celebrity, not wisdom. 

If a Princeton historian is to have any more value than a glib talking head, please show that you don’t carry a political bias. Debate someone in your weight class like Mark Levin in public. Everybody would learn something from that.
