    This farmer's son was going to school and was taught "out of a book" about crop rotation and erosion. The father was angry because his corn yield was lower every year. He took the teacher to court for teaching his son "nonsense" out of a "book".

    The teachers lawyer was put on the stand and asked if he had ever "farmed". He said no. The other lawyer scoffed at him defending "book learning" about "farming". Threw the book across the room.

    The lawyer, while on the stand, named off the states that had passed "compulsory" education and said it was only a matter of time before Kansas passed compulsory education. The court room went nuts, everyone screaming, "No education" , "We don't want no education".

    Oh my God, I thought. It's today's Republican Party. From "Gunsmoke".

    A lot of stuff you see on TV is fiction. Just a heads up, RD.

    Yes. Kansas could have used a bunch of liberal democrat school teachers to show them how to use condoms.

    Are you aware that Gunsmoke is fiction? That "The Fires of Ignorance" was a dramatization, and never actually happened?

    Sounds made up.

    Maybe it was Bonanza, or Big Valley.

    We need a link to verify which one it was.

    Apparently, Rdean writes his posts based on the same logic.

    Don't remind me of the TV I had to watch when I was with my Grandparents. And Miss Kitty was the most respectable madame in the town.
