It sometimes amazes me just how much a bit of history on an otherwise commonplace banal topic can change everything. Uncovering some truth behind the famed Pulitzer prize was one such case. Joseph Pulitzer who literally climbed up the social class ropes after emigrating to the United states from Hungary and starting off as a waiter then a lawyer and finally in all his success as a journalist. His was a real rags to riches story with all the necessary embellishments of a very volatile and temperamental character. And 96 years after his demise ,his name forever echoes  in all conversations pertinent to journalism into perpetuity.
I don’t know if it’s actually possible but I now revere all that is Pulitzer even more and the exciting new carvings he embedded onto the journalistic and literary scene.
Has any new-found history on something common ever changed your perspective indefinitely?
