A correction from the Washington Post this morning sort of makes you wonder what they’re teaching kids these days:

In the April 10 edition [of The Mini Page, a children’s syndicated feature that runs inside the Sunday comics] about Wind Waves, Tsunamis and Tides, it incorrectly stated that the sun orbits Earth.

Um, we don’t remember high school astronomy all that well, but we’re pretty sure that theory was disproved sometime in the 16th Century. Even the textbooks in the D.C. public schools are probably more up to date than that.
