I was hanging out with my dad yesterday, drinking coffee and channel surfing and we discovered this pretty awesome show on History Channel 2 (the one where they actually show history).
Dad didn't know who Henry Rollins was: "History professors sure look different these days," said Dad. The show is really interesting to watch. The facts are grouped around significant historical people and events and the people they interview are knowledgeable. However, the best part is watching Henry Rollins and his real interest and joy at learning about these strange little bits of our history.
