I know many graduates of the nation's premier liberal arts colleges and universities. Few of them can name the liberal arts.
I know many electrical engineers who, if pressed on any details of the lives of Maxwell, Hertz, Marconi, or Faraday, would be ill-prepared to give one--let alone recreate any of their famous experiments.
I know journalists who have no idea about the contributions of Peter Zenger, W.R. Hearst, or Ernie Pyle. I've even read a journalism law book that makes no mention of Zenger--though he and Alexander Hamilton redefined libel law in the famous case that bears his name.
Draw your own conclusions.
The Hunger Games - Baltimore, Maryland, last night: Washington, D.C., last night: 40 miles apart. Might as well be a million.
