I'm not asking them to know how to put together a Conestoga wagon and
feed and maintain oxen.  I'm asking them to know that when you see a
stop sign you stop, and when you come to a right turn, you turn into the
right-hand lane if it's safe and not "no right turn on red".

Then again, they don't know that, either.
