My history course is titled “The American Experience Since 1945”; I am now studying Indochina and France’s fall at Dien Bien Phu. The breadth of my knowledge before this course? Well, let’s just say that I’ve been head-banging to the chorus of “We Didn’t Start the Fire” that keeps streaming in my head.
Dien Bien Phu falls, Rock Around the Clock…
Am I really this pathetic?
