The people who are starting university in February across the nation were born in 1987. They are too young to remember the original space shuttle blowing up. Their lifetime has always included AIDS. Bottle caps have always been screw off and plastic. The CD was introduced the year they were born. They have always had an answering machine. They have always had Pay TV. They cannot fathom not having a remote control. They can't imagine what hard contact lenses are. They do not care who shot J.R. and have no idea who J.R. even is. They don't have a clue how to use a typewriter. Do you feel old yet? Pass this on to the other old fogies on your list. Notice the larger type, that's for those of you who have trouble reading. Save the earth. It's the only planet with chocolate.
