While visiting the South Rim of the Grand Canyon one morning, I happened on this Docent explaining the geology and the history of the Grand Canyon. One of the participants had said the Canyon was named "Grand Canyon" because it had been discovered by a man named "Grand" ... lol ! The docent rectified this nonsense with humor and tact. Idiots are born every minute it seems ...
