“There is something very odd about a society where the most talented people all get tracked toward the same elite colleges, where they end up studying the same small number of subjects and going to the same small number of careers.

They tried to get me today. Watch out for a call from anyone claiming to represent the IRS. My impersonator had a strong south asian accent, which I happen to know all too well, and was claiming to be “Brian Marshall from the IRS.” He also told my father that there was an arrest warrant out for me. Phone number was 1-646-543-4999.
