Several people have made remarks similar to:
> It can easily be done if the boys want to.
And I confess to wondering why Americans are so willing to say that about
PHYSICAL activity but never about mental. What is it about us that makes
us value a football player (or an Olympic Swimmer, or a Wimbleton Champ)
more than a college professor, or a State-of-the-Art researcher?
Who earned more the year Apple Computers hit the open market -- Steve
Jobs or the local NFL team's starting QB? And which has had the most
impact on the most people?
Just a random thought on a Monday morning; don't bother flaming me.
