Some clever words from 'Newsweek'

"Americans like history as long as it's over fast enough."

Anna Quindlen in Newsweek.

Too true. Especially now that my university, feeling suitably intellectual after the greatest upset in sports history, has done away with any history requirement at all for its students.

(for another sad commentary on American taste, see this)
