2010 Mindset List

Time To Feel Old

It's back to school time - in my family, that's Thursday already - and Wisconsin's Beloit College dropped its annual reminder of my geezerdom: the Mindset List. You know: to today's college freshman (born in 1992), life had always been like this or never like that ("Czechoslovakia has never existed").

Our own Tom Harkin, or rather the Americans with Disabilities Act, gets an indirect shoutout at number 8: "With increasing numbers of ramps, Braille signs, and handicapped parking spaces, the world has always been trying harder to accommodate people with disabilities."
