Interesting that a guy named hymen would question another man's masculinity.

Aside from being totally off subject, mean spirited, and irrelevant, this posting shows more than poor taste. It shows a lack of respect for a most importnat aspect of our education: HISTORY. Too many recent surveys show tbat our students, and population in general, have an abysmal knowledge of history. They make fun of not knowing something. They think that history is just a collection of long-past dates and a bunch of old dead people.

Some ask "Why study history -- there's no future in it". How wrong they are! Knowing the history of yourself, your family, your community and your country (as well as your world) are vitally important when it comes to making real decisions. Such knowledge helps one to understand the differences between people, nations, and religions. A knowledge of history will make you a better voter, a better member of the community, and overall a better citizen. I find it unacceptable for our so-called political "leaders" and those running for office have a convenient and embarassing ignorence of history. If it weren't so serious, some of the political posturing would actually be entertaining. And to make matters worse, there are huge numbers of followers who will believe every word, even if it isn't true. Knowing history would surely preclude many poor decisions, and would help provide guidance when it comes to anticipating the impact of decisions regarding war and peace, the economy, the evolution of social civility snd a long list of other real-time situations.

We need more people like Ken Burns who have a passion for the subject and the talent to bring it into focue for a great educational experience. Who knows, Buster, you might accidentally learn something!!
