Short quote: common knowledge

Wherein it's good to know what you don't know

and_going.html">John E. McIntye:
When I was an undergraduate at Michigan State, a friend,
Andy Scheiber, offered to help a fellow student in a Milton class
review for the midterm. Arriving at his dormitory room, she opened up
her Merritt Y. Hughes edition of Paradise Lost and asked, "Now who's
this Sa-TAN; he's in there a lot." By now, one hopes, she has put in
her 35 years as a schoolteacher and retired. I also saw some of the work
of fellow teaching assistants in graduate school at Syracuse, and some
of them should have been kept from the classroom at bayonet
point.
