In Hartford Connecticut, we enter into the capital building for a tour. After waiting twenty minutes worth of metered parking, we finally catch a tour. Unfortunately, we are not the only ones. Sixty third graders also join the tour. While they appear to be very intelligent, the tour guide seems to think that she must dumb her presentation down for their sake. The funny thing is that once she opens the floor to questions, the kids blow her away, inquiring about topics that don’t seem to be covered in her “tour guide manual.” We break off from the group because the pace is slow, and we really aren’t interested in relearning, in detail, the three branches of government.
