Sure you heard about problems now and then but nothing like today, I'm 53 and a punk going into a primary school and gunning down a bunch of kids would have been unheard of when I was a kid.
Now see, I was thinking that when I replied to the post, but thought better of it. I didn't want to derail the thread into a "Thse daggone modern kids! Grrr! Grrr!" thing. Even though I can tell you when I was a kid they were allowed to spank you in school. (Forget that time out crap).

Heck, kids may be worse now than back then. So if Star Trek does become possible in the future Kirk will have 50 illegitimate kids and Worf will be a Gangsta Rapper. Picard might be a Pimp. Who knows?
