CNN'S RESIDENT HISTORIAN
In honor of the upcoming Fourth of July holiday, when we all celebrate the history this fair nation, I'd like to share the following story. It seems that CNN's Kiran Chetry recently taped an interview with a developmental psychologist. With her usual brand of journalistic prowess, she came up with this:
Chetry: The other interesting thing is that we all were taught…you know, we learned the, the, the important lesson when we were little about Geor---was it George Washington chopping down the cherry tree? Or just being honest about things and how important it is, yet so often in life we see uhm that —well, actually it was Abe Lincoln because we say “Honest Abe”…
Guest: Yeah, sure.
