i hated history in school, but history is really important. i think that teachers could have made it more interesting, although, even at my alternative high school where teachers made learning more fun, i found history pretty boring. i think some aspects of history still bore me, but i definately have a greater appriciation for it than i used to.
a couple people who helped make history more interesting to me are comedian eddie izzard and folk singer utah phillips. i learned a lot about history through both of them.
here is an eddie izzard video. thoughts on World War 2.
