Don’t just pontificate, do something!

Ever get the feeling, looking at all the Important People doing Important Things that maybe they’re just pretending? That they want to be Important People so they do things that everyone can pretend are Important Things? I have to wonder if some of them would be doing society a lot more good by turning in their Mantle of Important Personhood and focusing on something else. Maybe a neglected state or local issue. All the focus on national politics and national problems makes me believe intelligent people with amazing ideas are getting drawn to areas where their efforts will do little good.

And yet I don’t know if that’s really the case. I wish I did.
