Or perhaps more fairly… Fuddy-duddy minds, simple answers.
Frank Rich writes in yet another endless column today: “For five years boomers have been asking, “Why are the kids not in the streets screaming about the war the way we were?” The simple answer: no draft.”
How about an even simpler answer? Different war.
Of course, you’ll never see anything like that out of Rich whose entire weltanschauung hasn’t changed a jot since he heard his first Crosby, Stills & Nash album. How conservative, in the true sense, is that! What I would love to see is Rich parodied on South Park. But I doubt the guys would bother. They may not even have heard of him.
