  1. For all those complaints about the state of the world and youth today…

    …here is yet another example of how some things do not change, and the ancients dealt with things that are similar enough to modern day troubles and whimsy.

    Here’s the list as I recall so far, including this one:

    1. corruption of youth/lack of appreciation for tradition
    2. graffiti
    3. new mediums threatening old ones (books vs. oral tradition compares pretty nice to books vs. computers)

    Heh!
