    Shot Heard Round The World

    YouTube - Schoolhouse Rock - The Shot Heard 'Round the World

    Every publicly elected official should be forced to watch the Schoolhouse Rock versions of US History before they get to become a candidate for the position. What great way to hold 'em accountable for missteps in ethical judgement! We could say "Whaddaya mean you didn't know it was wrong, [insert official's name here]?! You watched ALL of the Schoolhouse Rock clips, and signed here!!"

    Anyway, the Rock stuff that directly relates to events that shaped this country are by far the beginnings of my understanding of America's history. The list is long (my personal favorite is How A Bill Becomes A Law...I bet some of you are already singing it to yourselves). These little clips sparked my interest at an impressionable 5 or 6 years old. Come to think of it, all the language and math ones were pretty good, too (Conunction Junction and Zero, My Hero were classics).

    I really like "No More Kings", too. Schoolhouse Rock presented concepts in a brilliant-ly ("Get your adverbs here!") understandable fashion.
