Democrats in Connecticut think that it is up to the state Legislature to write history
The Connecticut Senate passed a bill Tuesday evening that would delete the Wright brothers from history, explicitly stripping recognition for the first powered flight from Orville and Wilbur and assigning it to someone else.
“The Governor shall proclaim a date certain in each year as Powered Flight Day to honor the first powered flight by [the Wright brothers] Gustave Whitehead and to commemorate the Connecticut aviation and aerospace industry,” readsHouse Bill No. 6671, which now sits on the Governor’s desk awaiting passage into law. . . .
