Bright young people? They are all into tattoos, nose rings, and gangstah
culture. A bit older, and you see them on beer and cigarette street. And
they don't vote.
I am an officer of a political club and am member of my county and state
party committees. Nobody there under 50, very few under 60.
I think the mass media and the public school system has dumbed down the
whole world. That is why you find few if any youngsters in telescope
making. Why make a telescope? You can buy one from China if you really
have to have one. Better to spend the money on beer, cigarettes, and
lottery tickets and spend your time getting a good buzz and watching
football games, than hours of endless polishing and figuring.

Make it a cell phone app? ;)
While there is a health dose of sarcasm in that question there is a bit
more to it. We can't look at this from our perspective and come up with
ATM mailing list http://www.atmlist.net/
