No wonder Americans are so bad at geography!:)

What I recommend is that anyone on this list who has kids in school actually
look over the textbooks for errors. If you find any, point them out to your
child and the teacher. Even go so far, if you have time, to point them out
to the school board or whatever body controls the schools. Also, a letter
to the publisher might also go along way to rectifying the problem.

No incentive to do all this? Well, those scared of nanotechnology, just
think what might happen if someone gets his or her figures out of a bad
textbook. Might not created gray goo, but just might.:) Those afraid of
AI, apply the same reasoning.:)
