    Oh my. Watching that video of the Senate Education Committee brought back such warm memories of the 60's. That nice woman played an excellent "Aunt Bee" pushing cursive on 21st century students. That scene could have been pulled straight out of an "Andy Griffith" episode. (Loooooove that show, BTW).

    Oh, wait. They're serious?
