Aristocratic Thoughts

The popular meme than anyone can grow up to be anything does little more than allow everyone to feel good about themselves as they continue going about doing the same old thing. There are two problems: everyone can't do everything, and even those capable of doing particular things, things that are important, may not choose to do so. Of course, there is no way that little old me, a mere mortal can possibly know that someone isn't stepping up to his or her potential, but I can suspect it terribly.

Especially when it's me.
