Friedman-Induced Singapore Blogging

Unfortunately at a certain point in this op-ed about how Singapore does education well, somebody presents a metaphor to Tom Friedman and he runs with it.

Things that are true: the government here is very smart about running a mixed economy well, education is good and well-funded, public servants get paid very well at the top, and corruption is between low and nonexistent. Also, it's a real hub of biomedical research. It's one of the places stem cell research came when America started restricting it for silly reasons.
