During five years as executive editor at an educational research lab, the statement of one person made me so mad, I can retrieve that emotion any time I consider what she said. She said, “Bring me a thinker. I can get do-ers, as many as I need, at any time. I don’t want do-ers. I want a thinker.”

I think her statement is ignorant and bigoted.

I think her mindset is what makes the United States weaker, since it outsources its doing to other countries.

I think her statement is an insult to people who do.

I think those who DO have plenty of thoughts and they think them.

Any thinker ought to know that.

That’s what I think.
