"Teachers of children
in the United States of America
wrote this date on blackboards everywhere
and asked the children to memorize it with pride and joy:

1492

The teachers told the children
that this was the date the continent was discovered by human beings.
Actually, millions of human beings
were leading full and imaginative lives on the continent in 1492.
That was simply the date sea pirates came to cheat and rob and kill them."


—from Breakfast of Champions by Kurt Vonnegut
