"Our Failure to Segregate Morons"
I was helping a student edit her paper and I cam across the above quotation, which was not written by the student, but instead taken from Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood. I couldn't stop laughing because honestly I think that accurately characterizes a huge amount of what is wrong with America. I work with academics in a fairly highly ranked university, yet I had to inform one of my co-workers that you shouldn't give maple syrup to a diabetic and another co worker that Milan and Rome were not close together (she had booked a hotel in Rome and then booked a flight to Milan thinking that "they were so close, I would fly into Milan and just take a cab to Rome").

Mother: That's the story of Jesus." -Bill Hicks
On a high note, one of my students gave a powerpoint presentation, which concluded with special thanks to Jesus, the Freshmaker and myself. I never thought I would share billing with Jesus.
