    Did anyone else read in that article about students having poor geography skills that 70% of Americans cannot find New Jersey on a map? What gives?!?!?!?!?

    It's called "The Dumbing of America".It goes hand-in-hand with this lovely(NOT)P.C. world we live in,no wonder the U.S. ranks so low compared to the rest of the world in education.In case anyone is wondering,I'm not anti-american,I served 8yrs honorably in the Army. :)

    That's old news. ;)

    And besides, we're the armpit of America.

    I can't believe that geography has not been stressed in school. :(

    Someone actually called NJ a borrough of New York.

    Pathetic.

    I like bringing people here and taking them around to places like Wyckoff, Cape May and Freehold and watch them eat their words.

    I seem to remeber that geography was required for graduation when I went to Salem HS.
