Are adolescents in charge of the society? No its not polite to look up a woman’s skirt. Its also not necessary to go nuclear when someone says lighten up. Will the USA’s mass culture forever be childish? Its like the classroom when the teacher steps out for a moment, in need of adult supervision. It is what it is I guess. I am off to Europe for a couple of months. They find this sort of USA behavior weird (both the stimulus and the response). Try to behave while I’m gone, OK?
