Alex Mechanick has chosen to not attend Camp Straussundbloom here in South Philadelphia. Instead he's going to The Ivy Scholars program at Yale. What? Who would pick that?
From the Ivy Scholars description...
"The Program is designed for exceptional high school student leaders, regardless of previous training in public speaking or debate, who aim to become senior leaders in their home countries whether they be future presidents, prime ministers, CEOs, corporate directors, public service or civic leaders. The goal of the Program is to study and apply the lessons of the world's greatest strategists and leaders spanning over 2,500 years to contemporary and future issues of the 21st century."
Sponsored by International Security Studies and The Brady-Johnson Program in Grand Strategy Yale University"
From the Camp Straussundbloom description...
"Pizza on Friday after you cut a lot of color copies! That is, if I remember I said I was going to get pizza."

- Camp Straussundbloom: Discussion about Lord of the Rings and water ice.
Hello? The choice is obvious.
Alex, I don't know what good is going to come out of this so called "grand strategy" planning!
