Hail to Thee, Stupidity

Also via Cursor, several students at a high school in Bainbridge Island, WA (where I was working in a coffee shop just this morning) are being privately tutored in American History because their parents have objected to the school's use of perhaps the most important book of our time, Howard Zinn's A People's History of the United States. This book has been the source material for a number of Fighting Words cartoons, including the now rather ironic "Billy, the Boy Who Knew Too Much."

Ah to live in the great Pacific Northwest, this oasis of political and social enlightenment...
