"There is always a philosophy for lack of courage."—Albert Camus

Is it wrong for me to hold a grudge against the French for this long?

The question is, "What is it that orbits around the earth?"



My six year old just asked me what I was doing. I asked her if she knew the answer to the question. She did. Then she asked me again what I was doing.

"Mocking the French," I said.

"OK, Daddy. When you're done, can you read me a story?"

No tantrum. No PLEEAASE NOWWWW DADDY.

At some level, she understands.

I don't care what the standardized tests say; American kids are alright.

Any ONE can make a mistake...the key point to appreciate here is that 56% of the audience voted for le Soleil.
