I was listening to the radio in the car this morning and I almost had to pull off the road, I was laughing so hard.
Apparently people hit the panic button yesterday when the text, tweet, whatever went out that Cher died! I love this...no, the text, tweet was "Thatcher died" Then the DJ was talking about the fact that so many young people didn't know who Margaret Thatcher was.
I've got no response to any of this except to reflect back and remember being at a college party when I was 20 and meeting somebody, who when I asked, "Where do you go to school?" He said, "Iona College". I should be embarrassed, but it's almost as bad as Cher dying...
I thought he said "I own a college." Having grown up in Ohio, I had never heard of Iona. I couldn't believe this kid, who couldn't have been much older than I was at the time, actually owned his own school! I was so impressed!
So, as much as I'm laughing and want to make fun of today's youth and anybody who thought Cher died yesterday, I have to accept that part of the world is no more smarter than I was then. As my grandmother used to say, "People who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones".
