No, of course it doesn't mean that they couldn't. But this reminds me a
little of the tens of thousands of little kids who want to be pro basketball
players vs the few who actually make it. Very few of our students will end
up this far up the hierarchy of academia. However, let's hope that all
of them end up in this social/civic sphere of which I speak. I see myself
as an educator having more influence here.
