    Forgive me if I suspect that these are people—many of them in their surly mid-twenties—who’ve never been truly whacked by life over the head, who’ve never laid their lives on the line for a cause larger than themselves, who’ve never stared into the barrel of a gun, who’ve never spent a day in jail, and whose daily crises consist of having to choose between the mocha latte and the cappuccino.

    Well said.

    Thank you for saying this so well. I've run into my share of people who can't express anything other than "Moron!" and like words, which is why your piece acts like a clarion call for diplomacy and cordial expression. Every member of any forum should read your piece.

    In the classroom, at workshops, at PhilMUG, and everywhere else, he always makes the clearest sense to me.

    Indeed, in life, there are things that you earn, and the right to rant is one of them.

    that was nice sir butch...thank you.

    moron was not the only word used. imbecile was also used.
    These words are ranked by IQ level. Maybe next time be careful when using such word.
