Iraqi offers Scholarships, bringing in college recruiters.

Got to hand it to them, if there's a way out of a mess, it's in financing education, and investing in the future. In a world where the 5th largest economy is too broke to rise above #50 in public schools of the US - California, I'm talking to you - this is almost encouraging.

Invest in growth areas - engineering, computer science, an the like, and 30 years later you get Apple, Microsoft, JPL, and beyond that Google and Yahoo!. Worked for Kennedy.

I shouldn't talk though, as I'm a child of privilege that went for an expensive art degree.
