Hey, here's a quote from the Oct 17th Stanford Daily. Ehud Barak, the former Israeli Prime Minister, is a Stanford grad and spoke at the university last night. ------------------------------------------------------------- Though Barak ultimately left his mark on the world not through academia but rather through the military and politics, he said that he considers universities to be at the forefront of international leadership. "Somehow, the university is the place where the leadership of the future in all areas of life is formed," he said. "Since the best and the brightest are coming through . . . these institutions, they have a great influence on the leadership of this nation and nations as a whole."
