Selective memory or selective history?

As of 5/15/2014, the following paragraph appeared at the center of the AHS website. The bits of information are true, but hardly present and complete and accurate picture of what really happened. For the "rest of the story", see the 4/27/214 (Political Mayhem) and 10/28/2013 (Letter to ...) blog posts.

AHS Sunset Review: Shortly after midnight on April 24th the Arizona State Legislature passed a 10-year reauthorization for the Arizona Historical Society. This is the outcome we desired. We want to thank you, our members, for your help in this effort. Many of you attended the House and Senate hearings, sent emails or made calls to legislators, and rallied our friends to do the same. All these efforts paid off. Thank you and here’s to another 10 years of making history at AHS! (The Sunset Review is the evaluation by the state legislature for the reauthorization and continuation of the Historical Society. All state agencies are subject to a review at least every 10 years.)
