It's relative. They are in our history books, but in schools both are given little notice compared to the Revolution, the Civil War, and the two World Wars, at least in American history classes. My American history education stopped at World War II, and one year WWII was all we studied. Because the teachers' husbands served in it.

I just used logic. Then I had to stop myself from overthinking it. In the back of my mind, I considered it might be a trick question, but since they said it isn't, I tried not to second-guess myself. It was a relief to find I was right.

Exactly. And the difference is that our wars today are fought by an all-volunteer force, even if they joined up because they couldn't get a job otherwise. And the military is paid for through regular income tax and other regular taxes instead of war bonds which would involve the will of the people. The more we pay for war out of the budget, the less we get for schools, bridges, social programs, etc. but many citizens don't realize that.

A creature that can terrify you just by scowling is not "cute." But I can understand how her attitude changed completely when she saw the babies. It's empathy for a critter who's just trying to keep her family together and safe. Still, I can't stand possums. I've been surprised by too many big ones in my attic or basement or trees that were way too close and I didn't see until they moved. That's unnerving.

In my previous career, I always called myself a disc jockey because it was pretty straightforward. Then some begin referring to us -or themselves- as "air personalities," which I thought was overly pretentious. I am not a personality, although I have one. It was another way of boosting an employee's ego instead of paying them decently. I happen to know that in several places, we were called "the help" behind our backs.
