We’ve Got the ‘Schoolhouse Rock’ Blues

Hey,

Then-Sen. Joe Biden was sworn in in 1973, the same week that Schoolhouse Rock debuted.

I bring this up for a couple reasons.

First, Schoolhouse Rock was awesome. If you have little kids, I highly recommend introducing them to it. It’s funny, smart, educational, and at times deeply patriotic. It legitimately makes me sad that you probably couldn’t make the history episodes today. One warning: It’s also a bottomless pit of earworms. So be prepared to walk around singing, “conjunction junction, what’s your function?” or “interjections (hey!) show excitement (yow!) or emotion (ouch!).”
