Specialization

I am due to head off to Duke University to give a couple of talks (my usual intellectual schizophrenia, one presentation on U.S. Native American policy and one on pop culture and the politics of cultural pessimism). But before I leave, a quote for the day:

"A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects."
