By Joe Hughes
It’s been an odd year for Bill Watterson. The iconic Calvin and Hobbes creator — whose reclusive nature has informed his legacy almost as much as his brilliant comic strip in recent years — saw the release last month of a documentary about the cartoonist and his legendary comic strip. Shortly before its release, Watterson engaged in a rare interview as well.
After all of that, it seemed as if the increased attention on the cartoonist would begin to wane again. Instead, it’s only going to increase, as its been revealed that actor Leonardo DiCaprio will be producing a biopic of Watterson.

The entire education system summed up in a three panel comic strip.

This right here is 110% why I don’t give ‘memorize these facts!’ tests. I tell my Intro to Bible students straight up, first day, that if I didn’t have these notes in front of me, I’d be blanking on about half of the names, dates, spellings, and scripture references I tell them every class. If I can’t remember the difference between Jeroboam and Rehoboam without a cheat sheet, why should I expect them to?
A better test question, Mrs. Wormwood, would be: ‘Why is the Pilgrim landing at Plymouth Rock considered an important event in American history?’ …Though when my students can’t answer big-picture items like that without their notes, that is when I start drinking.
