Don't Trust Anyone Under 30 - By Catherine Kenney
The trenchant social critic and humorist James Thurber once pointed out that the elders of all societies have always decried the youth, while fearing for the future of mankind. Such hand-wringing is kind of their job. Many of us over a certain age used to believe an easy slogan of modern youth-worshipping America: Don’t trust anyone over thirty! we’d say, back in the day when that meant anyone who was born before us, members of the unruly onslaught of babies that boomed onto the scene after World War II.

By Leigh Anne Jasheway
