The future builds on the past
Austin American Statesman

a plane, I struck up a conversation with an engineer. During our chat,
he highlighted how college students earning degrees in the humanities
and social sciences should pay more for their degrees, basically
mimicking Gov. Rick Scott of Florida.
Ironically, in an earlier
part of the conversation he had asked me why the United States continued
to make the same mistakes in the interventions in Vietnam and Iraq. I
pointedly noted that it related to people not knowing their history.
