First Thought Of The Day

Why did we square dance in gym? We didn't milk cows, or learn to bale hay. Was this some holdover from a magical hillbilly kingdom that preceded the U.S.? What possible PE benefits could this have beyond sweating the possibility that you weren't going to be paired with the partner you wanted? Shouldn't educational reform begin with the wisdom of little kids being taught to "promenade"?
