There’s an interesting article in the boom! section of The Toronto Star (feb 12) written by Christopher Hutsul. It was about the current generation of twenty-year olds, with our designs on a higher education and upper class living. He talks about a generation which was told that they should aspire to achieve greatness and look down upon menial labour. A basic argument, ending in the realization that we’re probably going to have to attain the zen of gruntwork to be happy later in life. At any rate, I enjoyed it. Unfortunately, it’s not available online. Update: I scanned the article.
