Generation angst

Dear Editor:

Last Saturday night, I saw the one-man punk band “Cracked Things” perform at a local coffee shop. I’m an older gentleman and I have to say if this young man speaks for his generation, we are in trouble.

In a room filled to the brim with liberal pacifists he pounded us with his songs declaring that both sides of the aisle were responsible for the present state of the world. He sang that one day his generation would hold the current and past political administrations accountable for their crimes against humanity.

I might disagree with this young man about how to go about things. But now I see that the youth of this country may become a militant political force in this country and if we don’t act, in our old age we may be treated as war criminals ourselves.
