The treason of the clerks, continued

Some years ago, Jerry Pournelle teed off on the teachers in American schools and universities for failing to transmit our national culture to the young skulls full of mush. The result of this failure has been a staple of Jay Leno bits for decades, and an endless stream of surveys that show most high school graduates (and college graduates, for that matter) don't know shit about American history.

From what John Barnes has to say here, apparently the college librarians are doing their part to contribute to the ignorance of America. RTWT, and once you've stopped gnashing your teeth,we'll get back to the main thrust of my post.
