Morning commute

On the PATH train this morning, a young street-wise guy (he turned out to be 27 but looked younger) told me the problem with his generation is that they're "dumb as bricks." The problem with the boomers, he said, looking at a picture of Hillary in my newspaper, is that they think they're entitled (and he mistakenly thought I'm a boomer). He's for Obama, he told me, but emphasized that the problem with his generation, including the Obama supporters and the hipsters in Williamsburg, is that they're dumb as bricks.
