I have been gone for a week and I will be gone longer. I apologize for the lack of posts but it is very difficult for me to get web access. I was hoping for help but I will try to do better.
It appears that the University of Richmond has its annual beach week right before graduating ceremonies and the kids go wild. Parties every night (can’t fault them for that), fireworks in a restricted danger area (like to beat their ass for that) and just care free fun in the sun. I talked with some of these youngins and asked what they were going to do after graduation. Most of them don’t have a clue. My guess is that they are not ready to face the world and figure that mommy and daddy will be some endless money pit for their fun. Some were actually prospecting jobs but pickens was slim. Ya think? All I got from these conversations were a sense of non-chalance. They are having a young Republicans gathering here but I get the feeling that kids just don’t care much about politics or voting these days. Some had some sense about not voting Dem but they really didn’t have a good answer why not. I’m getting a sense that the new crop of young voters won’t be helping the nation out much this election. And Obama just “officially” went on the campaign trail today. I’m only glad that no one is paying attention–especially the knuckleheads!
