A sad state of affairs

1  comments

A couple of columns appeared this last week addressing the intellectual decline in both the United States and Europe. David Brooks in the New York Times wrote about finding an old Time magazine from the 1960s and comparing the content to the same magazine today. British artist and historian Paul Johnson wrote in much the same vein about Europe in the Wall Street Journal. I wonder what it’s going to be like 20 or 30 years from now if things continue in the same direction?

  1. Oh, not to worry — we Indians are there to provide all the brain power the world needs — Bill Gates discovered that long ago — MICROSOFT is practically run by Indian software brains!
    BTW, I really enjoy your low-carb diatribes — I am a keen low-carber myself 🙂
