I'm also a grumpy old man, but I'm glad Wikipedia was there to remind me of the approximate date of Juvenal's reference to panem et circenses.. It was Aristotle who said of youths: They think they know everything; it's not exactly a new phenomenon.

Thanks to the Internet, I have the opportunity to be better informed about a wider range of subjects than has ever been possible hitherto. And so does everyone else, if they're prepared to take it. Is that a bad thing?
