  •  Funny how one who endorses cutting the humanities (6+ / 0-)

    doesn't know his/her history.  The humanities and the sciences come hand-in-hand.  You could even argue that the rebirth of Humanism was a necessary precursor from the Renaissance and the Scientific Revolution.  

    When I look at Rick Perry, for example, I see someone who I didn't learn his principles of logic and reasoning in humanities class.  How could he possibly understand the science and math without that?

    I can sympathize with the desire to provide more students with better opportunities in science and math, but why would you provide more funding by stripping education elsewhere when there are so many other aspects of society that need it less.  In fact, I'd like to call for the Paris Hilton School for the Humanities, wherein we use her inheritance as funding.
