And stay off my lawn!

From a new Pew Research report (details here):

"...yesterday's long-haired slackers causing social unrest -- are today the most likely of any age group to describe today's youth as spoiled, materialistic and driven by instant gratification."

(Note to Pew: those weren't "slackers"--that's MY generation, the group that came after... they were the yuppies, and they worked hard for their cocaine and BMWs, and they're mad at their kids, the Courtneys and Brandons they had in their late 30s and overcompensated their choice to focus on career by buying them as much shit as they could that made the kids materialistic... or I could be wrong and it's the Internet's fault.)
