oh, that's an old old old idea!!!  plato and aristotle were worrying
about 'youth' not holding up the standareds, or having bad morals.

obBujolld - who was the Auditor that thought everyone under 60 was
'youth' and had a terrible upbringing?

my great-grandmother thinks all her grandchildren have no idea how to
bring up children.  and  yet, we've all avoided pneumonia and being
hit by cars.
