See Global warming a hoax? No, the hoax claim is a hoax. Rush Limbaugh fell for it, though, as did several others who profess to be skeptical of global warming.
Millard Fillmore’s Bathtub started as my way of learning about making blogs work, for my hope to integrate blog usage into the classroom.
This blog focuses on history education, with meanders into all of the social studies: Economics, history, geography, law, political science, and government (have I left something unmentioned? It’s in there). Debunking false, bad, bogus and voodoo history occupied me from at least junior high school; the story of Millard Fillmore’s bathtub, the hoax perpetrated by H. L. Mencken and the inability of historians to straighten out the issue in 90 years, seemed a good jumping off point.
My hope is to help students, their learning partners (especially parents), teachers and administrators make history sing for the students — and other social studies, too.
My experience is broad — political campaigns, legislative staffing, executive agencies, law, private business (airline, wireless telephones, logistics and other management consulting), and education (college, graduate school, secondary).
