How About this Kid

Heard this on FoxNews this morning and it just made me think that sometimes not knowing "conventional wisdom" can be an asset.

A high school [Marc Roberge-ed.] student who showed in a science fair project that using a clothes iron on mail can kill anthrax-like spores inside — without damaging the contents of the envelope — will have that research published later this year.

His High School science project will be published in the Journal of Medical Toxicology. something his Dad, a toxicologist, didn't accomplish until he was 35. Here is a kid that thought about a problem and without preconcieved ideas and solved a major concern regarding terrorist attacks.

On the news program he was saying he had applied to several universities. I hope they are digging through their files and putting his in the "to be heavly recruitment" pile.
