Dear Class of 2012:

Allow me to be the first one not to congratulate you.
Through exertions that—let's be honest—were probably less than heroic, most of you have spent the last few years getting inflated grades in useless subjects in order to obtain a debased degree. Now you're entering a lousy economy, courtesy of the very president whom you, as freshmen, voted for with such enthusiasm. Please spare us the self-pity about how tough it is to look for a job while living with your parents. They're the ones who spent a fortune on your education only to get you back— return-to-sender, forwarding address unknown. -- Stephens: To the Class of 2012 - WSJ.com

Your Say

I'd be surprised to find that many of the most OWS (where's mine) crowd tried to text message their CV's for the job.

Mark Levin really lit into Stephens at the start of tonight's show, for painting with a broad brush. Not all young people are like this.

Stephens point is invaluable, Levin's is not.
