    non-addicting, low cost way to make it easier for people to think.

    I'd settle for being able to get rid of even a tenth of the  things that currently make it harder than, say, believing.

    Oh, and I'd like a Sheltie puppy.

    I'll donate the third wish to anybody who needs an extra one.

    At least half the future I've been expecting hasn't gotten here yet. Sigh.... (Yes, there's gender bias in my name; no, I wasn't thinking about it when I signed up. My apologies.)

      press freedom. That damned thing has worked mostly opposite to what the framers intended, ever since our founding. --Except, like most things about our system, during the heavy regulatory New Deal half century.

      Press freedom Constitutionally turns the mainstream public square into the domain of corporate information warlords.

      We need to figure out how to civilize the information and communication sphere; press freedom makes that impossible.

      We are called to speak for the weak, for the voiceless, for victims of our nation and for those it calls enemy.... --ML King "Beyond Vietnam"

      does Number 1 amount to

      "An education system that works"


      Or were you thinking more along the lines of

      "a better 5-hours Energy supplement" ?

        to a workable educational system, rather than the system itself.

        5-hour energy, I think, runs into the "non-addictive" disqualifier.
