Yet more evidence..

...of the death of education in the US.

Richard Cohen, pretend liberal columnist, in one of the nation's flagship newspapers:

Here's the thing, Gabriela: You will never need to know algebra. I have never once used it and never once even rued that I could not use it. You will never need to know—never mind want to know—how many boys it will take to mow a lawn if one of them quits halfway and two more show up later—or something like that. Most of math can now be done by a computer or a calculator. On the other hand, no computer can write a column or even a thank-you note—or reason even a little bit. If, say, the school asked you for another year of English or, God forbid, history, so that you actually had to know something about your world, I would be on its side. But algebra? Please.

See the idiot ripped to shreds here.

No wonder we have so many people saying evolution, geology, biology, physics and apparently now mathematics is against God. 

What a total fool.  He's probably too stupid to even realize how much a fool he is.


What is the highest educational level this twit ever had? Did he pass kindergarten??? Or did he get a waiver for that...
