Smart enough?

    Minor nit, but “smarter” should be “more knowledgeable”.

     

    The things we tend to get upset about are whether the kids have *learned* as much, not whether their IQs are high enough.

     

    Makes for a less good title for a TV show, of course, but we probably should be focusing on the actual concern here, not optimizing for ratings :-)

      Dear Mark:
      Here is comment by Sailer,

      “[...] Q. What’s the initial thing we should do?
      *
      A. When you find yourself in a hole, the first thing to do is to stop digging. By letting in so many unskilled (i.e., largely low IQ) immigrants, especially illegal immigrants, we’re digging a deeper hole for ourselves.

      So let’s stop. Now”
      Your F.r.

        Your idiocy is exceeded only by your arrogance.

        • Argument by insult is its own refutation.

            The only connection is the first name of our remarkable hostess, Ms. Joanne Jacobs.

            When icicles hang by the wall,
            And Dick the shepherd blows his nail,
            And Tom bears logs into the hall,
            And milk comes frozen home in pail,
            When blood is nipped, and ways be foul,
            Then nightly sings the staring owl,
            Tu-who;
            Tu-whit, tu-who: a merry note,
            While greasy Joan doth keel the pot.

            When all aloud the wind doth blow,
            And coughing drowns the parson’s saw,
            And birds sit brooding in the snow,
            And Marian’s nose looks red and raw,
            When roasted crabs hiss in the bowl,
            Then nightly sings the staring owl,
            Tu-who;
            Tu-whit, tu-who: a merry note,
            While greasy Joan doth keel the pot.
