    the millennial moment happened in davis, california 

    i know i complain about the kids today.

    i know i taunt them unfairly when i ask them “where is your Zeppelin, your Clash, your AC/DC”

    i know they’re trying.

    some of us feel like they have had everything handed to them: the interweb, flat screen tvs, ipods, tivo, jon stewart – and we wonder what have they done with all of that?

    ok not we, me.

    and recently i thought, maybe they have too much, maybe creativity and inspiration comes when you are suffering.

    necessity is the mother of invention, etc.

    then an overweight cop in Davis casually sprayed some of them in the face with pepper spray

    at point blank range and errrything changed.

    and then the very next day, at night, the chancellor of the university where it all went down came out of a long meeting and walked across the campus

    past the students who were in the grass protesting

    and the kids, god bless em, gave the greatest silent treatment to her

    of all time.

    major props to you. seriously.

    now plug in a damn guitar.
