That this smart kid chose to color his problem set the way he did draws merely upon what every Tom Dick and Harry has known already for a solid decade.  He is not culprit.  We are.  We have been led for decades by savvy marketers, and it will require a crisis to shore up our vulnerabilities and reinject substance to our leadership.  We'll get there else not.  I give odds at less than 15 years before urgency requires action regarding our grid.  One way or another.  1.00
