    My daughter's taking AP History in school and is quite excited (and exhausted) about all she's learned this past year, so I grabbed a Waterman Expert I'm using now and ran to her room to tell her about this. Her answer:

    "So, inadvertently, this company contributed to causing World War II."

    I better get back to work...
