Yesterday, Kottke posted some newly found photos of the Titanic that surfaced recently.
You can go look at them here. They’re great.
After posting them, he posted a collection of tweets from kids who didn’t know the Titanic was a real event. The news made me snicker at first, but the more I think about it, the angrier I get.
There are religious groups that want to put prayer and faith back in schools. I understand the argument, and there was a day when I argued for the same thing. But those things don’t lend themselves to improvement in knowledge. They appeal to people who think prayer benefits kids … when there’s nothing that supports a positive or negative effect.
How about putting reality in schools? How about putting history back in schools?
Here is the screen cap of tweets:
Before I go and claim I don’t have any submitted Wednesdogs, I thought I would post and ask if I’m missing one that you sent.
My dog likes to get in my emails and eat them, so I have an excuse.
Otherwise, this one will have to do. It’s a dog that looks like Jude’s Sam reading a self-help book called, “How to Pick Up Bitches”.

Texts from Hillary reads: Santorum “I ended my campaign for president.” Hillary, “It’s what Jesus would have wanted.”
Wait, didn’t Jesus want Santorum to run? I’m confused.
I guess God loves Mormons more than Christians (and Muslims!) and he wants them to run this country.
Score one for the bad guys.
