Consistent histories

Physicists including your humble correspondent always preferred to keep the normal logic. I really don’t understand how one could work with von Neumann’s strange rules. The consistent histories, the most complete framework to interpret quantum mechanics today, imply that exactly those quantum histories (sequences of projection operators at different times) for which the classical rules of logic work – the consistent histories themselves – are allowed.
