More "ain't it the truth...."

Having come out of the public schools in Kansas, this is all too true... You can be taught, but nothing that might interfere with prejudices or local bigotry. Maybe my particular small town was atypical in that regard, but I doubt it. University was such a surprise, when it turned out so much of what I'd been taught was either subtly wrong or quietly ignored such large chunks of inconvenient truth....
