“One day you’ll know what age feels like—that is, if you don’t die trying.”

The young’uns these days have no qualms about mocking the elderly, the near-elderly, and anyone at least a year or two older than they are.
And they do it in ways that would be considered unforgivably hateful if directed against, say, a gay black midget. Hating people merely because they plopped out of their mother’s punani a dozen or more revolutions around the sun before you did is not only tolerated among the young—it often seems to be encouraged. We witness endless torrents of scalding verbal acid flung at “old white men” whose demographic demise is celebrated as a historical inevitability and a triumph of justice rather than, say, some kind of quietly orchestrated genocide. -- Is it a Hate Crime to Call Madonna a Shriveled-Up Old Hag?

Don't worry, Stug, Madonna will survive this terrible wisecrack. All is well!
