      There’s an interview out there somewhere with GZA on Neil Degrasse Tyson’s radio show, and he put it nicely with something along the lines of (paraphrasing), how when he was growing up, he’d see a spider spinning a web and how he was so full or awe and wonder and how that awe and wonder needed to find a creative outlet. Today’s impoverished youth don’t have that same sense of awe and wonder.

      When he said that, I was like, “Yeah, the powers that be have done a most excellent job at their mission, then.”
