I was stopped on the street this afternoon and asked if I’d answer a question for CNN.  Then the mike was in my face and the camera was focused on me.

“What is jerrymandering?”

I told him the answer.

“Where did the word come from?”

I told him part of the answer; he told me the part I didn’t know.

Then they asked my name (and its spelling).

I told them if they wanted “silliness”, they should avoid asking a teacher… ’cause a teacher would know the correct answer.
