Hegelin is a physicist. NPR had a long segment from him Tuesday (10/8)
on All Things Considered. He says government can't solve people's problem
but can provide the appropriate education to help people solve their own
problems. The segment was big on education. In fact, if I were to distill
a party catch phrase from his talk, it would be "Education, not regulation."
