Those Young Idealists

Tom Friedman's column from yesterday on education is perverse in every facet, but this line made me smile:

With Wall Street’s decline, though, many more educated and idealistic youth want to try teaching.

Ah yes, those "idealists" who were in recent years going to Wall Street, for idealistic reasons, and have now thought better of it, on equally idealistic terms. Can we have some of those?
