I'm worried about today's youngsters, and it's not for the reason you might think -- that rap music is turning them all into fucking wiggers. No, I'm worried about them because time and time again they've proven that they're easily the stupidest youngsters in the history of our nation.

I know what you're thinking. Surely youngsters are no stupider today than they were, say, in the 1970's? And if they are, it can't be all that much stupider. Unfortunately for you, I disagree, so prepare to be persuaded.

Take this story as an example. It details the recent introduction of a marijuana-flavored lollipop called Chronic Candy, and the sale of said to today's youngsters.

In the 1970's, children frequently smoked marijuana. Some said this was a reaction to the general malaise felt by the country during the waning years of the Vietnam War. Others attribute it to a loosening of moral standards following the excesses of the late '60's. No matter the reason, they used marijuana because they wanted to feel euphoric, relaxed, and generally delightful.

Some speculate that the nation is in the throes of a similar malaise today. There are certainly parallels -- we're involved in an occupational war that appears to be without end, energy prices are rising, and the economy is languishing. And yet the reaction of today's youngsters is to eat a marijuana-flavored lollipop.
