What it takes to impress the youth of America

This reminds me of the following story:

We have a high school student working here one day a week on some of our research projects. It’s great to have him around. Anyway, he was telling us a few weeks ago that Hillary Clinton spoke at his school and he met her. I asked him what she was like. He said that she was really old. Also, really short. He said she’s supposed to be 5’7″ (see here for some competing estimates) but that in his judgment she couldn’t have been 5’4″ in heels. I told him that Isiah Thomas probably isn’t really 6’1″ either.
