Truth To Power

"Our nation has lost its educational and technical edge to countries such as China and India in large part because we’re obsessed by short term profits over long term stability, amusement over education, and meaningless flag waving over substantial change. And as long as non-stories such as the Ground Zero Mosque or the fevered insanity that is Glenn Beck continue to dominate our national discourse, things will never change. We’ll just get dumber, and more broke, until finally, one day, we won’t be rich and idle enough to enjoy the warm fuzzies of nonsense." (01/02/11)
