If scientists were compensated at a level comparable to sports heroes and
rock stars, more kids would aspire to be scientists.  Don't blame the kids
for accurately gauging the value of a technical education.  For instance,
does anyone believe that the tech industry's clamor for more special work
visas for "highly skilled" foreign workers, is the result of a lack of
American workers with the needed skills?  Or is it more likely the lack of
skilled Americans willing to work for the low wages being offered?
