Dallas - those were kids in Washington State.   I bet most Texans know where is the Capital of Texas.  Odessa, right?

I agree with the Onion that they should be moved to the most famous city.

How well are high school student's informed?  I think there is a lot of variability.  Same for grade school.  I know I grew up behind "The Corn Curtain", where the only information we got about the outside world were it was full of crime and sinfulness.  Especially foreign  communist big cities like Chicago and St. Louis, which were full of nonwhite people.

I know there's a HUGE difference between 5th grade and high school, but when I see some of these high school students who are fighting against school prayer or trying to establish a Secular Student Alliance interviewed on television, I say to myself, "Wow!!  These kids sound so adult."  I'm really quite impressed with their maturity and coherent understanding of issues.  When I think back when I was in high school, I can't help but laugh at what a buffoon and clown I was.  I think kids, overall these days, are more mature at younger ages.  Yeah, they sure grow up fast, for good or bad.

Dallas, I don't care if you rain on this parade, just as long as it's raining men.  Hallelujah!

I really think this boy and his speech are genuine.  He mentions that his mother is very open in discussing this topic.  Perhaps he's just repeating his mom's "talking points" but, in my opinion, his words don't sound forced or too adult.  As far as him stumbling while reading, I do the same thing and I'm 47.  I give him the benefit of the doubt.

It is the way he made mistakes, like he was unsure of what certain words were.  I am still proud of him and shared this on facebook.

Skepticism is always important.

I remember my science fair project in grade school, my dad was so enthusiastic that he basically did the whole thing.  It got 1st prize, if I remember correctly.  So the second time around I was stubborn and disobedient, and did it entirely myself.  I got 3rd prize but was much much prouder.  For what it's worth, If I read aloud something I write, I will make mistakes - social nervousness.

Im also very proud of him, regardless.  And of his mom.

He also had problems reading it in places
