The people who are going to college this year were born in 1993. They are too young to remember the space shuttle blowing up. Their lifetime has always included AIDS. The CD was introduced four years before they were born. They have always had an answering machine. They have always had cable. They couldn't imagine life without their cell phones. Jay Leno has always been on the Tonight Show. They have never been without microwaves and can't cook without them. They never took a swim and thought about Jaws. They don't know who Mork was or where he was from. They never heard; "Where's the Beef?", "I'd walk a mile for a Camel. ", or "de plane Boss, de plane." McDonald's never came in Styrofoam containers. They don't have a clue as how to use a typewriter. They use calculators, computers and the Internet in college to do all of their lessons. They have always had 'personal' computers. Search Engines have taken the place of a set of good Encyclopedias. Email and texting has taken the place of writing personal letters and mailing them. Notice the larger type? That's for those of us who have trouble reading cause we're getting 'old.' P.S. Save the earth. It's the only planet with chocolate.
