        When I was close to finishing my engineering degree, I outlined some of my views on the value of and my enthusiasm for education. Then I dropped the matter until I was certain I would actually graduate! (An administrative snafu could have sent me into yet-another quarter... .) Somehow, this jotting got left behind. But my thoughts about education--its challenges, its inspiration, liberation, plus its inestimable worth--have never varied. Paraphrasing H. G. Wells slightly, “the future of humanity is fast becoming a race between education and catastrophe.”
