Herodotus was probably a jerk

2353-base_image_4-1424269591I was humbly reflecting on how history will remember me and it got me to thinking about Herodotus. The “Father of History” was probably a jerk. To be fair I would be too if I was the one who got to decided exactly what was or wasn’t history and who got to be included and who would be forgotten. How far would someone go to please him? Like the first marathon runner.

Here is what probably happened. Most likely.
