← U.S. State Science Standards Are ‘Mediocre to Awful’

The American inability to focus on the 'hard' subjects while frittering its energy away on educational fluff, football, and religious foolery pretty much ensures that we will cease to be a significant factor in the future. The paralysis in government and the reluctance dream or act in large scales has destroyed unity, cooperativeness, and competitiveness. Balkanization seems increasingly likely.

I fear that it is too late for us... Save yourselves while you still can!
