Re: New US dollar coin: The Americans don't know their Presidents
True...but there are people out there that don't even know who the president is now! Leno finds them weekly!
It is true, though, that we don't need to know everything taught in a High School civics class by heart, but we should at least understand the Bill fo Rights and know about the current branches of government.
Knowing all the presidents and their order is good for Jeapordy and that's about it.
