The Cold Hard Truth

My generation is up to the ears in it.

Cold hard turd.

When I went to California and interviewed my 91-year-old aunt, I can't tell you how many times she said that the GI Bill made all the difference in her life and to her generation. For several generations we've been investing in education and the US has dominated the world's economy, cold war silliness notwithstanding due to our technological achievements. But somewhere we went wrong and started investing in moneymaking instead of progress. This is me just sort of talking out of my ass. But something is wrong. Why does it seem that ignorance has become as rampant as AIDS. Ignorance is some sort of manmade, bloodborne leukemia of the mind.
