    Calvin takes great pride in his ignorance.

    Why shouldn’t he take pride in his ignorance? It’s the American way, after all…

    Calvin…there really is something in life better than the next TV show! But, check it out…you might get lucky and find a program on deserts. If not, just find some sand and look up “desert” in an encyclopedia! (I am sure you have a set in your home as your Dad is a professional type of guy). ;)

    Unfortunately, it’s not just americans..Take this example: voters in Italy, Germany, Austria, Finland, Hungary, Bulgaria, Greece, Romania, and Albania had plebiscites of one kind or another, voting in the national socialists. They had no idea what these people were, but they voted them in, anyway. 1923 was the year that musselini and his Face of Socialism party (Il Fascisti) was voted in. 1932 was the year that the Germans voted in the national socialists. Austria voted for the Anschluss..After the war, in 1947, the Czechs and Slovaks voted in the communists. Given that they’d just been mistreated by two branches of socialism, the NSs and the Communists, that made little sense. They should have known who these people were. Czechoslovakia has the dubious distinction of being the only central european country to vote in communism.

    Sand and a dessicated bird or mouse body should do the trick.

    If these plebiscites were the usual “free and open” elections as were practiced in Iron Curtain countries, as I’m surethey were, it’s not fair to say they ‘voted Communism in.’ “Vote for us or we will kill you” is a strong incentive for all butthe very bravest to vote them. The German electorate DID have a choice in 1932 when they voted the Nazis in, and the Austrians were probably largely in favour ofAnschluss [though having the Wehrmacht on their borders,poised to invade if they voted against it very likely increasedthe Ja votes substantially.] Both electorates were egregiouslymisled by Der Fuehrer as to exactly what they were letting themselves in for.

    All the Bulgarians, Hungarians, and Romanians I know would disagree violently with your assertion that they voted Communism in. The Red Army was there in case they votedagainst the Communists, assuming that the Communists allowed any non-Communist candidates on the ballot….

    Hungary and Romania sent troops to fight against the Russians. Bulgaria did not send troops, since the Russianshad helped them in their wars for independence from theOttoman Empire in the 1870s, but under compulsion didallow the Wehrmacht to use it as a jumping-off point to theEastern Front.

    In desert schools, is the diorama trees and grass?Or cows? Or water?Certainly not deserts, as they have plenty of them, just looking out the window!

    If Calvin’s Dad took the family on a vacation to a desert, the desert would get some rain.

    Sand. Rocks. Chunk of green sponge pretending to be hardy desert plant (add a few toothpicks as branches). Done.

    “I wonder which is worse, ignorance or apathy?”“I don’t know and I don’t care.”

    He doesn’t know what the desert looks like? Seriously, he’s never seen Roadrunner cartoons?

    Calvin could check out the National Geographic website for information on deserts.

    What’s the difference between ignorance and apathy? I don’t know and I don’t care.

    If ignorance is bliss, the world should be a much happier place.

    Calvin is so rude. No wonder why I never see him play with anyone but Hobbes. He’s the only one who can tolerate him. Besides his parents, of course.

    Calvin knows Suzy, but she’s hardly a friend. Does he have any friends who are boys? *When he’s pictured in other cartoons, he just looks so small, weird, and lonely.

    Anyone remember the radio show “It pays to be ignorant?”
