But if you teach him to teach fish, the fish can learn not to get eaten

Scientology "has taught me that you can teach a man to fish and he'll never go hungry, but if you teach a man to learn, he can teach himself how to fish and anything else he wants to do."

If only it had taught him what a metaphor was...

That's a student at the Scientology boarding school quoted on Anderson Cooper yesterday. Cooper also interviews Kim Masters about her cover story on Tom Cruise in the new issue of Radar, which is unofficially out now. I'll have more to say about the issue soon I hope.

Fish have been trying to learn for years. Why do you think they live in schools?
