Im working my way through this Pew survey report about young people today. So far (in my reading), the "bad" is that one-third of them have tatoos, theyre focused on fame and fortune, and 20% are atheistic or religiously unaffiliated, while the good is they tend to favor privatization of social security. Right now, theyre more Democrat than Republican, though that could change (we hope).
An interesting observation for those dissatisfied with George Bushs America is that, across the board, people are pretty doggone happy: more than 80% in every age group report their quality of life as excellent or good, and over 80% say theyre very or pretty happy. But nevertheless, "the country" is going in the wrong direction. By what measure?
