    Adios, just the other day I went for a bike ride and put some C.O.C. in.
    Even today they still don't sound too bad, I don't know why they didn't make it big.

    Thanks. A lot of environmental stuff came out in the 60's stimulated by Rachel Carlson, Stewart Brand, Mother Earth News, and evolving with Avory Lovins, Carl Sagan, etc. Our generation was the one that reflected back on that beautiful blue marble spaceship called planet earth for the first time. It was a pivotal moment and my mind resonated to people trying to do things smarter. This is what evolution is supposed to be about.

    Sorry for being macabre, but I'm becoming more and more skeptical of today's youth.

    I've been wondering for some time, is it merely the fact that news, especially tragic news, is more widely distributed, or are children becoming more and more violent?

    I don't remember ever hearing of violence committed by minors when I was growing up.

    Just weeks ago, a 17 year old was arrested and charged for abducting, killing, then mutilating a 10 year old girl on her way to school. This past summer a 20-something year old grad student opened fire in a local theater and killed 24. Several years ago it was the shootings at Columbine.

    I just don't get what is going on?!

    Violent crime is down. Violent crime for youths spiked in the early 90s, but is down overall since the 80s

    In my back yard it seems very few teens are working. When i was a Teenager ,I and most of my friends had jobs.We didnt have time to be out getting in trouble. I see a lot of parents just give them money . In many cases the more you do for them the less they want to do for themselves. I have a lot of neices and nephews like that.
