Mason:

In my dealings with companies that rely on STEM graduates -- science, tecnology, engineering and math -- I've found that many executives are truly nervous over the prospect of finding good people in the years to come.

There simply aren't enough qualified folks pursuing those types of professions.

Our schools are generally a mess here in the U.S., and the fault lies with parents and a culture that's focused on all the wrong things.

John,

My late father used to call oblivious people "fat, dumb and happy." He was right. We've had it so good for so long in the US that we have no idea what it's like to be truly tested. That's a little (a lot) frightening.

How many parents in China are taking their kids to cheerleader camp? How many college students in Vietnam are getting raging drunk at fraternity parties? How many 18-year-olds in India are counting on that $23.50/hour job at the paint factory for a post-high school career, so they can go huntin' every weekend?

I'm not disparaging some of these choices. Do them if that rocks your boat. But for God's sake, don't be blind to what's coming at you, and if you decide to be blind, don't be surprised when you're left out in the cold.
