  1. While I don't take quite as harsh a stand as the author, I tend to agree.

    They stand on lawns way too much for my taste.

    That the story of Narcissus is itself thousands of years old would seem to indicate youth and the fixations of vanity are not a new problem.

    I don't think that any of his assertions are true. Maybe the tattoos. Maybe.

    True - except maybe to the extent we fall into our own reflections and drown.

    Can I get a ruling as to this thread's degree of irony?

    Given that it is a Fox News story I would say degree is fairly high.

    The U.S. already raised a generation of deluded narcissists, the Baby Boomers.

    We have always been at war with "young people."
