In my youth, I had pet garter snakes, rabbits, bull-frogs. You name it. I enjoyed sandlot baseball, exploring in the woods, and playing hockey in the canal. I consider myself quite information technology literate, yet I think the youth of today are spending far too much time warping their brains through an addiction to computer games. Moms and Dads of the Plateau, I urge you to boot 'em out the door! It'll do them good.
