Happy Columbus Day!
Here's the poem most of us normal kids learned in school: In 1492, Columbus sailed the ocean blue. Do they still teach about the Nina, the Pinta, and the Santa Maria, or is that forbidden, too?
Do they even teach anything about the explorers who made great discoveries under difficult circumstances? I doubt today's students can even conceive of a world that didn't include a cell phone and an Xbox in it. What a shame -- they're missing an awful lot!
