Kid Nation

OK, so, check out this kid Alex. He’s 9. His responses to the questions in the link are ridiculously sophisticated for a 9 year old. If I hadn’t seen him on the show, I would doubt any 9-year-old could have written them. But I have seen him, and he really is that precocious. He’s brighter than about 90% of the adults I’ve met in my lifetime.

And how cool was it that Morgan led the town in an interfaith prayer service? That’s pretty freaking amazing. And those ignorant, silly things the kids were saying about each others’ religions beforehand? Not all that far off from the things adults say, from the things we all think, about other religions.
