David Carr (@Carr2n) - Always lament the present, Ctd

David Carr of the New York Times said (20m):
"This lament about a generation incapable of significant or long thoughts is a hardy perennial that comes up every ten years. Now we're worried about the Millennials. Before that we were worried about the Gen X'ers. Before that it was the punk rockers or the hippies, I forget which, that somehow had lost their ability to think critically about what's going on. I've been both. The problem and the old grampy-pants Pointing a finger at each and I think that we cycle through this."

"Back in the day, for one thing… you know what, it wasn’t all that great."
