Gen Q.

Andrew Sullivan recently pointed out a response to an oped piece in the NY Times earlier this month by Tom Friedman. In that essay, Friedman announces a new demographic--Generation Q, that quietly sits at home online and says very little about the big issues facing the country. The response, in the American Prospect is written by a twenty-something teacher in Brooklyn.

This is a bit off topic, but I think serves as good foundational info about the generational and cultural challenges we all face in tackling the various issues of the day, including connecting kids with nature.
