Fame and Fortune
I just don't understand it.
Kids today. They have no sense of shame. They have no sense of privacy. They are show-offs, fame whores, pornographic little loons who post their diaries, their phone numbers, their stupid poetry—for God’s sake, their dirty photos!—online. They have virtual friends instead of real ones. They talk in illiterate instant messages. They are interested only in attention—and yet they have zero attention span, flitting like hummingbirds from one virtual stage to another.
Why would the younger generation be this way, so narcissitic, so self-centered, so cravenly fame seeking?

"I see no hope for the future of our people if they are dependent on the frivolous youth of today, for certainly all youth are reckless beyond words. When I was a boy, we were taught to be discrete and respectful of elders, but the present youth are exceedingly wise and impatient of restraint.'—Hesiod, around 700 b.c.

I didn't notice Titney was our partying. Doesn't she have children, and stuff? What is she doing out? To use the words of Chris Rock, go take care of them kids before they rob me in 10 years.
