I'm sorry, I just couldn't resist...

(and) The only thing different is that I wouldn't have used that kind of
language. But if his web site is a guide, I don't think the younger generation
is going to hell in a handbasket after all. I was actually heartened; I thought
teenagers were much more depraved than this web site demonstrates.
Well, Mr. Dewey... I am *SO* glad to know that you are heartened by a 16 year old
that cusses us all out, but not by one that has been on this list and never been
that offensive. (Yes, I've made mistakes, and challenged a few adults on this
list, but I don't remember using obscenities to do it._ While I can't claim to
be as pure as the driven snow, I certainly don't use that language!
