I wasn’t going to write a follow-up on the Tyler Weaver story, but then I found that a Polish website had linked to my article on the reading competition throw-down in Hudson Falls, New York.
That article generated the same amount of website traffic, from more areas of the world, in 3 days that my entire blog generates in a month.
You go Tyler.
The story may seem small, in the grand scheme of things I didn’t write about it because it was a big story, but it was indicative of a general attitude that pervades our country these days.
Those that are exceptional, those to succeed too much, should “step aside” and let the little people win occasionally. Except that’s not the way to create a successful nation. The success of our country is built on competition, not hamstringing the best members of our society to make others feel more successful.
