My son and I were watching some "Jay-walking" clips from Jay Leno's show on the web. In case you don't know what I mean, that's the segment of the show where he stops people on the street and asks them simple questions about U.S. History, the Constitution, current events, geography etc. None of the people he asks can answer even the simplest questions... "When was the War of 1812 fought?" "How many stars on the flag?" In some cases, people who identified themselves as teachers or as recent college graduates in history couldn't answer simple questions about the Constitution, didn't know the year America was discovered, didn't know when World War II was fought, and in one case, could not name the Vice President of the US. Are these people for real? Are people actually that ignorant?
