Did you also walk uphill both ways?

I do think you're partly correct about some kids playing too many video games, etc. (Although isn't that the fault of today's parents who used to be those wonderfully wholesome kids you talk about?) It's wrong to lump all of "today's youth" into one giant category, and compare them unfavorably against the "we kids" of yesteryear. Fact is, there are many amazing young folks out in the world doing unbelievable things.
