I actually feel like I’m a little older than the people this article is talking about. Or maybe that is just another delusion I am creating in my head and this article is pointed squarely at me. Either way, I don’t think we should take anything it says too seriously. I mean, how can you criticize and entire generation of gifted individuals?
