Diminishing Performance

Okay, it was almost three weeks ago that I read it, but maybe it has taken me this long to comment on it because of how shockingly inane it is.  I came very close to immediately canceling my subscription.

It is titled, “Celebrating the merits of being average.”  At the risk of sounding unkind, I think it should have been called, “Celebrating the merits of idiotic ideas.”

My first reaction was that the author, Judson Edwards, didn’t do the math.  He seemed to be clueless as to where his ideas were likely to lead – as if, except for in swimming and, okay, some other endeavors, the U.S. isn’t moving quickly down the ladder of world rankings at increasingly greater speeds.

What editor decided to put this drivel in the paper?  It more properly belonged on the onion.com
