    If only because no one should be force fed the kind of "history" that the rightwing has been integrating into public schools, particularly in the South. Can you imagine the surprise when a child from a newly emigrated family tries to explain to their parents how the earth is only 5,000 years old, men rode on dinosaurs and how American Indians never knew how good life could be before us "true Muricans" came to save them from their savage ways? Not to mention their take on the Constitution, slavery, the Great Depression, the New Deal, the Iraq War etcetera.
