"Kids today"

Al sent me an article from his local paper, written by someone who grew up around here, complaining about closing school for cold temperatures, called "Generation Namby Pamby."

But it occurs to me that it's her generation that now serves as legislators and school board members and school district superintendents who have instituted and enforced these rules. Apparently they took a different lesson from their experiences growing up than she did.

I hear these grumblings a lot, though I tend to think that these complaints represent a "vocal minority" because someone made these rules and others clearly supported them.
