I am amused

From today's althistoryblog:

in 1949, famous educational advocate Chaim Witz was born in Haifa, Israel. After emigrating with his parents to the U.S., Witz became an elementary school teacher in New York, where he soon took up the cause of poor children in this country. His outspoken criticism of segregation and the sorry state of schools in poor districts led to a national system of public education.

Two points to anyone who can identify the identity Chaim Witz is known as in contemporary society.

I only knew the answer because it was revealed in an episode of Family Guy that I watched over the weekend.

Since I did, in fact, learn something which proved to be relevant later; then yes, I would have to describe that as "educational".
