"Hopeless conservative" is an oxymoron, Jack.

Don't worry; you're not likely to be called a hopeless conservative or even a hopeful conservative any time soon. So you've got that going for you.

As for the kids; I expect that some of those kids spending countless hours texting and playing Grand Theft Auto on a Playstation, will end up no good and in prison. Like some of the kids in the 50's, 60's, 70's, 80's and 90's.

I also expect that some of the kids whose lives are spent in the digital world will someday engineer solutions to problems beyond our current imaginations. And that they will be largely inspired as a by-product of the amazing digital world they currently inhabit.

Some of them (very few, I suppose) might even grow up with better judgment about current affairs than Mr. Lessenberry. I don't know why Jack Lessenberry would be so disappointed by the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling in Citizens United v. FEC. After all, the ACLU took the side of Citizens United and favored the corporation's free speech rights.

Does anyone suppose that Jack Lessenberry would have trouble defending a corporation's free speech rights and First Amendment protections if the corporation had a name like, say, the New York Times, or the Toledo Blade, or National Public Radio?
