TELEVISION- Craig Ferguson's Monologue Last Tuesday Night

Rarely do you get to see something this true on network TV.

Craig hints at another truth. Young people are also EASIER to sell crap to because they tend to be more impulsive and more prone to folly than older people.

I used to have a young friend who once said, “I’m never going to lose touch with what’s going on in youth culture as I get older.” I pointed out that being interested in the same things when you are 40 that interested you when you were 20 can be a kind of failure. As you grow older (and hopefully wiser) your interests should change. If not, you wind up being that old guy at the club who everybody else makes fun of because he’s kind of creepy. At some point you go from “still cool” to pathetic. Youth culture is only revered by the young, the dysfunctional, or people who want to sell things that more discerning adults either don’t have any interest in or time for.

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
