Sorry if it's been done...missed it. Anyone read it? What did you think? It's good, but I found the picture it presents of today's youth --- not just the youth of Melbourne--- quite shocking: was quite taken aback by the casual abuse of alcohol and drugs -- emphasis on 'casual'. Made me feel I have NOTHING in common with the youth of today.... and these are nice kids! Good kids. They have part-time jobs; they're not thugs: they treat people with respect; they share the kind of values I can recognise. But the risks they take--- my generation, children of the 60s, were no angels; but we didn't have that weary cynicism that seems to permeate today's youth culture, that seems to make them completely dependent on external stimulation ....did we?
