Something to Know - 25 February

Ben Sargent
1.  Albany News Bureau comes through again.   Our history of the world, as we interpret it, in two minutes.   No college credit given, but you gotta see it:

2.  Now, one of my favorite topics, and one which I advocate - the Draft.   Not for what you think it is, but for all the collateral side effects, among which are  (1) Being less likely to enter stupid wars, (2) The experience isolated kids get when they enter into groups of people they never new existed, (3) Social experiences with ethnic groups they never understood before, and working with them as a team, and (3) Getting a grip on what the world is really like from a leveled playing field.  We need to expand the "draft" into a program that expands to national service with areas into public service sectors across our country and the Peace Corps.   No exemptions...period.  I am sure that you probably have your own reasons:
