  •  Dropping Thomas Jefferson? (0+ / 0-)

    The saying goes, "Those who don't know history are destined to repeat it."  Except, apparently, after Texas revises the textbooks, where those who DO learn history (Texas style) are destined to be confused.

    I always had a sneaking suspicion that someone out there would see the Onion's "Our Dumb History" as real.  I propose we make America (The Book) the official history text book for the rest of the nation.  

    Seriously, though, if they want to revise the textbooks, I think the rest of us ought to demand one concession: The textbook publishers have to put "Wingnut Edition" in bold print on the "revised" books.  Truth in advertising and all that.
