They're having cry-ins (which are supposed to be like sit-ins except lamer, with crying, coloring books, and lattes on hand to assuage the feelings of the perpetually offended). This new turn of American sensibilities makes me want to start a petition to change the lyrics of the National Anthem to the "land of the free and the home of the ... oh f*** it."

Like most things the Boomers unleashed on the world, their millennial children are profoundly despicable, immature, entitled, privileged, volatile, ignorant brats intent on getting their way despite rules, laws, and the rights of others.
