Highly Competent Foreign Kids

A few months ago, I was in a Walmart in Garrisonville, Virginia, where I saw a woman's child knock over a display. She sort of apologized and left (with the kid, to her credit). Then a manager had a new employee fix the display. But the manager had to give directions like, "Find all the similar items and put them together, facing the same way." The new employee was at least in his late teens.

Today I'm in a museum in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. I just saw a five-year-old Asian Indian kid knock over a display of brochures, then without any directions he picked them all up and reshelved them.

America is in for a LONG decline.
