Tell the truth. How many times did we eat an insult abroad for the lack of our manners? Maybe not you, not me. But we saw it in a compatriot. And I put it in the first person, because until we make it our own, we’re not gonna fix it. Maleducated is a term that defines us perfectly.

Uneducated because we have not been educated; not because we have been miseducated. He’d be like an “uneducated”, in the language of today’s boys.
