It makes me feel old too, to not want every dick and jane and harry and tina to be the focus of my life with every click of the mouse. I want colosseum-quality epic intellectuals, wrestling with bleak, stark, truths. They all seem to have run away from the mobs and bought webcams. Where is the courage?
