Facing History and Ourselves

Reading this post about a teacher's bad day, I clicked on the link Facing History because I was curious what the "universe of obligation" might be. I didn't find out (yet) but I did see this, which is interesting. It's Matt Damon talking about an incident in school in 8th grade, which turned him on to school and history. I wonder what you think about it? (Scroll down to the bottom of the Facing History page).

I guess I should explain about the universe of obligation. Too tired to do it tonight, but I will get something up about it soon!

Please do, fred. I'd never heard that phrase before.
