Can't Wait For The MySpace Generation To Run For Office

from the now-that-ought-to-be-fun dept

Our discussion on the fear mongering article about MySpace could probably be summed up as saying that it's about time we started teaching people common sense. Taking a slightly different view on all of this is David Canton, who points out that all of the non-common sense by folks today, posting all kinds of personal information to the web is going to come back to bite the MySpace generation in a few years when they start running for office. Of course, on the bright side, maybe it will completely weed out a series of potentially common senseless politicians by automatically disqualifying them. At least we can hope.

    Re: When the Myspace generation runs for office...

    Yea... no. You and just about everyone else over 30 completely overestimates the amount of drug use that goes on in high schools. Yes, it's there, but the media has over-hyped the whole thing. I personally have never used drugs and this generation has a lot more in store for it than sucking. Take if from the #1 male in his junior class of 660 and someone who's getting paid to research semiconductor lasers with a college professor for 7 weeks over the summer. Watch who you generalize.
