Gen X, for all of its pretensions, was the most conservative of generations for a long time. People my age are a lousy-ass voting bloc, plus our generational size is tiny. But my sister's generation--you know, the kids today, the Generation Y, the twenty-somethings of the moment--they're a different breed. And I'm hoping that through the power of inspirational slow jams, they will change the world.
(Also, for the hyperattentive, how awesome are Tyra and Landry from Friday Night Lights that they are both in this video?)
