from the blog Curmudgeonly & Skeptical presents Boned Jello…
|Last night I watched part one of a surprisingly good Military Channel documentary about dropping the first A-Bombs on Japan. Towards the end, the late Col. Paul Tibbets (who flew the Enola Gay) made this disdainful comment about the school system.“Our high schools know nothing of this history. I was once introduced to students as ” a man who fought in world war eleven.”
(bold emphasis Guffaw)
“Introduced?” by a teacher? I suspect this has something to do with 100+ years of dumbing down of both students and teachers.
