“War is God’s way of teaching Americans geography.” 

From The Devil’s Dictionary, 1906

I am now considering naming my firstborn Ambrose because this quote is that good.  Can you believe this was said 100 years ago?  I had always assumed that this country’s geographic ignorance was a relatively modern problem.  Apparently, it has always been this bad.
