I applaud your gesture and sentiments sincerely. However....
We have a society (in America) in which the basic building blocks of a fruitful life are not available equitably in any sense of the word. To wit as long as there are problems in areas such as:
1) housing from the obvious (the homeless) to the anonymous people living in substandard public housing.
2) no universal health care.
3) horrible public schools (and I'm talking about the physical structures and "food" even more than the teaching) for our children.
4) the unbelievable subsidies given to the most polluting of our transportation alternatives - automobiles and airplanes - at the expense of public transportation.
I find it hard to get too worked up over the notion however valid it may be of universal access for brilliant children to MIT. Nonetheless, thanks for your thoughts, actions, and for providing this forum for reply.
