Hernando de Soto update

My daughter took her history test today. She said she felt confident about how she did. She was able to study right before the test.

I couldn't resist, so I asked her: "What important facts did you write down about your explorer? It was de Soto right?"

"I said when he was born, where he died, what he explored..."

"What about those other facts you found as part of your homework?" I asked, trying to play the part of the father full of fatherly interest, with no regards to any past blog postings or ongoing professional conundrums.

"Oh yeah," she finally replied. "I said he brought knowledge about Florida back to Europe."

Maybe Wikipedia is good for something.
