Wanda picked Paris as “a country known for its breathtaking scenery” during the final minutes of this game show. Her sister Lissette picked Paris, too, and then changed her answer to London.
Sigh. I suppose I should be reassured that they both got zero points. But I have taught children who thought they lived in the country of Waukegan, deep inside the mysterious continent of Illinois. We need to begin to teach geography again, and not just state capitols.
When Wanda and Lissette are ready to go to Paris, Dublin, or Vienna, I’d like our citizens to seem a wee bit more ready for Prime Time.
