Vertically Challenged Dictators
Today I began to tackle the daunting task of grading the homework from my world civ class. Because Davis High is currently on spring break, the teacher had a lot of homework due the day before they left for vacation. So I have to power through ninety papers by Monday. Anyway, we are currently covering the rise of Fascist dictators in Europe and one of the required questions in the book was "were Hitler and Mussolini more alike or different?" While most of the answers were about their party ideologies, one of the students responded with: "I think they were more alike. Both were Fascist leaders and both were unimpressive looking short guys."
