Bread Is Toast

I mentioned the competition put up by the SEIU (since Sliced Bread), that was supposed to invite new ideas to create jobs and get America going.

It has now entered the next phase: a first round of voting on 21 ideas selected by judges.

The general reaction has been .... well, 'unfavourable' is an understatement!

The general concensus is that the ideas nominated are neither new nor inspirational. Nor do they necessarily fit the criteria. Another complaint is that, where several people have submitted what is essentially the same idea, only one has been selected, and not necessarily the first one.

I have to agree that none of the final ideas are going to set the world on fire. Given that there would be about one thousand other entries per finalist, there is surely a better selection to be made than these.
