Sort of off topic but there is hope for those young people we old  
farts often denigrate. Musically and otherwise.

Check this site out. It is a video submitted by a 20 year old, 1  
minute and 44 seconds long, that speaks volumes about todays young  
people. It is a verbal and written palindrome, reading the same,  
forwards and backwards, but the meaning is 180 degrees different. It  
won 2nd prize in a contest, "You at 50" run by AARP.

The next time we diss kids musical tastes, or their attitudes, play  
this video. Some of them are a helluva lot sharper than we old folks
