Looking At The Future Again
Spent the morning interviewing scholarship applicants for a Leadership Award given by the Cal Alumni. The future of the Golden State is skinny, soft-spoken, and two-thirds of the time had trouble answering the questions posed. Two-thirds of the kids in front of me seemed to prefer to try and insert scripted sound bites or neutral blather rather than focus on the actual words of the question. I’ll take the session to mean that some have spent too much time looking at the current political leadership, and not enough thinking about how they might be able get things done themselves. Fortunately one-third was different though. There may be hope yet.
