Pearls Before Swine (4/17/11)

Is it ever easy being 22? Or 23? Or 25? Once upon a time in America, high schools sought to prepare young people for the various, serious responsibilities of adulthood. With a high school diploma in hand, a graduate could find a job (nearly impossible today), keep up with current events (Britney? Khloe?), and even start a family (okay, some things never change). But today, even college graduates have a difficult time making their way in the world. They spend their twenties bouncing from job to job, fretting over their career prospects, complaining about the opposite sex, and failing to put money away for retirement. And young people who are just now graduating? From what I understand, they’re moving back home in droves. Not only are they hosed, but their parents are too. Yikes.
