American Brain Drain

While we in America were fighting wars abroad and culture wars at home as our infrastructure grew dilapidated, the rest of the world started growing up.  Now, the children of those crossed the seas to find the American dream are finding that energy that once drove such dreams in their parents back in their ancestral lands.  This strikes me as an encapsulated failure of the American dream, but having been to China, India and Brazil, I can attest to that frenetic energy that simply doesn't seem to exist here these days.
