Hmm. I think you are misinterpreting this creativity quote. First of all, I
think it's meant to be kind of light in tone. And second, it seems to state
pretty clearly that we all possess creativity, but some of us feel we don't.
I love the Edison quote, too (1% inspiration, 99% perspiration), and think
that lots can be learned from that.

You get sour reading Mark Alexander's posts? Geez, the guy is kinda happy in
my book. Loves his job, has inspired and knowlegeable lessons, works hard, is
dedicated to his kids' learning, and does it all from a cart. But, hey, that
may piss some people off.
