You don't know who Scrooge is??!!!

So I was blown away this morning when a co-worker said he didn't know who Scrooge is. I mean, come on, what cave do you have to live in to not know this. Surely this should be a standard classic to read in high school. Why is this so outrageous? There should be a common cultural heritage by growing up in America and it's disappearing. That's what makes it sad. Meantime, get up to speed yourself by checking out the Charles Dicken's classic A Christmas Carol from the library or reading it online. Or at least watch a video version, preferably starring George C. Scott or Patrick Stewart. Even the Muppets know what Scrooge is all about...
