You're Doing It Wrong

I know, or at least hope, that reading online newspaper comments is not the best window into the soul of humanity, but it certainly is a bit depressing sometimes. The lack of sympathy or empathy for basically anyone is quite stunning. Everything is always the fault of victims, basically.

My "favorite" genre these days are the people who are trashing the youngs, discussing how when they were 18 they worked their way through college without any help or debt so why aren't kids today doing that? First, I imagine most of these people got a lot more help than they care to remember. Second, college is a lot more expensive now. You cannot pay for it by working summers and having a part time job during the year. You can't do it my friends.
