    Torture builds character? I guess Pig has been hanging around with Calvin’s father…

    School is for people who can think, and constant Googling is for people who can’t think.

    They wouldn’t let ‘em PUT it on the web, if it weren’t true.

    “Columbus sailed the ocean blue in Fourteen Hundred Ninety-two.”
    The above line is simply trivia.
    Why did Columbus sail the ocean blue in Fourteen Hundred Ninety-two?”
    The answer to that question is history.

    Yeah, I know. “Pearls Before Swine” indeed.

    Trade route to the East. For a time he thought he’d found China.

    I prefer pre-1990s history books. A lot of revisionist history got written in the 1990s. A school teacher locally got into trouble when she blamed Pearl Harbor on the U.S. and not Japanese expansionism and desire for oil and other raw materials in SE Asia.

    I agree with @Alabama_Al: History is about learning concepts, not memorizing dates and trivia.

    To understand current events, one must know history.

    If Pastis is taking the attitude that no one needs to know any history, I have to disagree with that. The average American voter is already far too ignorant (and also lazy).

    “Where Napoleon died”? Since when did an American public school require anyone to know that?

    I thought Tracy and Hepburn settled this question once and for all in “Desk Set.”
