Innovation alive and well in U.S.

David Brooks’ recent column “Where are tomorrow’s innovators?” is supposedly about a lack of innovation, but indicates a lack of understanding. In the past few decades, the Internet, the microprocessor, and mapping of the human genome, not to mention the birth control pill, have caused extremely fundamental, pervasive and enduring changes to our lives. So have digital advances in mail, telephones and entertainment.

Like us, Mr. Brooks would be far more aware of these innovations if Walter Cronkite was still around.
