It's funny that our country spends so much energy on American Idol, Britany Spears, and Paris Hilton. How many folks do you knwo that can not balance their check book (or care that it balacnes) but know the status of all the big Hollywood Couples. Maye we could get the problem solved by asking for help from Opra and Dr. Phil!

The point that is missed is not what Bennish said, but that he took nearly half the period to promote his views rather than teach geography.

It's because of "educators" like Bennish that our "publik skools" do such a poor job that U.S. Students finish 19th in standardized tests even though we spend more per capita than any other country in the world on education.
