I hate my textbook!

What kind of American Literature anthology doesn't include the Mayflower Compact? It's like, a paragraph long. What the hell?!

But they did have room for a Maya Angelou piece in the middle of "First Encounters" literature. Who's in charge of this? Textbook people are idiots.

Well, it's kind of boring, to be honest. The good news is that it's widely available on the Internet for you to torture--I mean enthrall--your students with.

Did we have to read that in American Lit? Because I have no memory of it being assigned.

Ah, but their political correctness and cultural diversity make up for that.
