Laura you were right, your parents did a good job teaching you to be polite and not to repay unpleasantness with same. I also found the comment inflammatory. But I don't think Bryan was regarding a generation but addressing the collective group of people he disagrees with how they show no respect for traditional ways of the club and the leaders and in their manner of expressing themselves. At first I didn't know which generation that could possibly be. There is no such thing??? You really need to think hard and then harder when Bryan speaks. You are AOK in my book (and I am sure Bryan adores young people too.) I know you would find more support here than the occassional grouch that you may have had the misfortune to stumble upon in the past, many people of any age are not judging others for their age. That's the problem with language as used it could be hurtful and appear mean. Guess us oldsters have calloused up through the years. Yup, you don't let that bother you, we love younger people at the rallies. When we see through your eyes and catch your enthusiasm and see your energy you lighten our steps and we all have fun. You put the fizz in the mix!
