    dissenting, I think.  Tho I haven't read the Time article.  One can't really read and use the English language effectively without some background in Shakespeare and the Bible.  For Norwegian:  both of those plus Henrik Ibsen and Snorre.  And so on, I'm sure, for all languages with a literary tradition.

    Teaching Bible and history of the Jewish and Christian religions should be absolutely pertinent in public schools if one had language and history as starting points.  But not recommended in today's climate, I fear.

    Thanks for the excellent comment.

    The Republicans are defunding, not defending, America.
