The More We Old Folks Lose Touch With Young Folks, the More Harshly We Criticize Them.

Newly retired, at 65 I tutored in an up-scale community's high school. Kids who were not making it...repeat, NOT MAKING IT, in the mainstream math classes, were doing set theory and more that I first saw in science and engineering studies in college. Half of their textbook exercises were in metric units.

Back among the retired folk I knew, I said they were wrong to complain of all young people. The determined complainers had probably grown up in abusive homes so I dealt with them differently.

Nope, read it again. More carefully this time.

"Yep, that's right, I admit I masturbate," - Catcher in the Rye

That's another one of my favorite books.

(at least I'm not aware of any censored versions, if there are I'm gonna fucking be pissed!)
