What’s the difference between a burro and a burrow?
If you can click to this site, you should know the difference. Do you?
One comes from that family of animals known as asses, one is a hole in the ground. If you can’t tell the difference, please stay the heck out of our schools and the policy fights over what is to be taught there.

My blog, Millard Fillmore's Bathtub, is a continuing experiment to test how to use blogs to improve and speed up learning processes for students, perhaps by making some of the courses actually interesting. It is a blog for teachers, to see if we can use blogs. It is for people interested in social studies and social studies education, to see if we can learn to get it right.

[…] What we now know is that some Georgia legislators are all het up about the difference between a republic and a democracy, though I’ll wager none of them could pass an AP world history or European history quiz on Rome and Greece.

You are a liberal elitist. :)
That’s just beautiful! Even more subtle than my father’s “South end of a north-bound horse”!
