Quote of the day - Oriana Fallaci

Look at the school system of the West today. Students do not know history! They don't, for Christ's sake. They don't know who Churchill was! In Italy, they don't even know who Cavour was!

Oriana Fallaci

12/30/05 update - I had an inquiry about Cavour, so I am inserting this button for a biography published in 1914.

I repeat this here in addition to the comment section, because Haloscan deletes all of my comments after a few weeks.
