    I am, somehow, less interested in the weight and convolutions of Einstein’s brain than in the near certainty that people of equal talent have lived and died in cotton fields and sweatshops

      This has been my reaction when anti abortion activists say things like, “What if Einstein was aborted??”

      Cool hypothetical. We know for a fact that millions of people waste their potential because of the color of their skin, their caste, their access to education, preventable disease, etc.
