TNR’s ‘Generation Whine’

In the latest issue of The New Republic there is a feature called, “Generation Whine: Self-pitying twentysomethings and the Boomers who made them,” by Laura Bennett.

I read the full article, as a writer and as a twentysomething. I found I enjoyed the article much more as a writer.

But, one reader comment at the bottom of the article made me just laugh. rayward wrote, “Judging by the comments, not too many twenty somethings read TNR.”

Yeah, that’s because like the article says, buddy, we can’t afford to comment; you need a subscription to The New Republic in order to post a comment on the magazine’s website.
