When Soni says "What this country is lacking is a good education." he is completely WRONG! It is the best in the world! Students flock to our colleges and graduate schools from all over the world. You don't see U.S. students eager to go off to school in China or India do you? What we are lacking in this country is good students. That's why tutoring is needed. The students can't do it themselves. They are not as talented as their parents think. Because their little darlings are struggling the parents blame the schools and happily pay for extra help for their children.

Just what Palo Alto needs, another ice cream store ... it sure is amazing how that invisible hand of the market works in the background to supply everyone magically with what is surely their number one necessity, biggest demand and solution to their problems.

Brian, that is the point, we do not do ice cream and sweet stores in moderation, in Palo Alto or most other places and it is one of the reason that we have the obesity economic, but you are right, not the cause of all the world's problems, but since no one argued that it did, maybe you ought to lighten up.
