Teenage Chasteland

They smoke less than we did. They don’t get pregnant as much. They don’t binge drink as often. They watch less TV, don’t fight as much, and don’t do nearly as much meth. Maybe they’re too distracted by their phones. Maybe they are a more advanced breed. Maybe they’re spending all their time building a billion dollar startup. Or maybe they’re just sort of boring. Whatever it is, these are slow times at Ridgemont High, and today’s teenagers aren’t nearly as bad as you were.
