While I agree with his observations in the article, it's a bit "light" for him...kinda obvious, you know?

Currently reading his The Storm Before the Calm -- so far, enjoying his work, as always.

Good read. Thank you for sharing.

The last line is well said:

Yep. George writes far better than me. But I’ve often said the entitlement mentality of people these days IS the problem. No sense of community that doesn’t revolve around them. No sense of service that doesn’t include them being recognized and rewarded for their efforts. No sense of purpose beyond themselves. No compression of duty, of honor or ... of dignity.

If we ever wondered what would happen from handing out participation trophies to a generation of kids, we now know.

Yep...but that’s what us old guys do. They ponder and reflect. What’s happening in our country today is causing many that still think to ponder...and reflect.

Looks like friedman has already mastered the Black and white capitalization thingee so in vogue these days. But of course there's no surprise there.
