All the news I wish to print

There are all kinds of stories out there. Some will make you laugh, some will make you cry. Some will make you shrug, some will make you scream. Read any daily paper or listen to any newscast and your emotions can go from happy to sad to disbelief to fear to incredulity to horror to anger in very short order.
As we go along, there will be stories, as Paul Harvey used to say, to "wash your ears out with." There will be others that will make you feel like you need to be deloused simply by virtue of have in heard or read them. Some posts will be religious, some secular and for some I expect will defy easy classification in either category. I hope you will join me in this journey and pleas feel free to comment along the way.
For my part I pledge not to remove any posts unless they are vulgar, libelous, threatening or otherwise in violation of the standards of civil discussion. I will not remove any post simply because I disagree with it but I will reserve the right to respond to any challenges that come my way.
God bless you and welome to my blog.

Are we are raising a generation of deluded narcissists?

The short answer is yes, we are. The generation that is now graduating college and entering, or at least trying to enter, the workforce and are discovering that much of what there parents told them about the world has no relationship to reality. There are no prizes for just showing up, accomplishments are earned not bestowed and no one, especially your boss and co-workers, cares one whit about your self esteem. So is it any surprise that these self absorbed, self involved, self entitled bunch has now voted itself as the "Greatest Generation" displacing the generation that fought and won World War II. You can't blame them, really. Their parents have been telling them how special they are all their lives. Who is the rest of the world to tell them to tell them they really aren't.
