Average Joe Buckeye Blitz cont. A front page article in The Jeffersonian out of Cambridge, Ohio this week noted I said in this fast paced society of ours, youth are often being shorted emotionally, with both parents off working and otherwise just rushing about. Youth, in turn, are being ‘parented,’ if you will, by television, computers, and so on. Being a former counselor, I know when youth get shorted emotionally, they grow up angry (and turn to violence). They grow up empty (and turn to drugs, sex, compulsive work habits). Just look around society… In an attempt to spend some quality time with my children today back in Bluffton, I took them to the Senior Center annual Spelling Bee Contest, where they had a wonderful time — and I developed some empathy for former Vice-President Dan Quayle. (Remember when he mispelled: “potato”?) Well, sitting on the sidelines — without the aid of a ‘spell check’ — I mispelled, oh, more than a few words. You’d think, in fashion or out, I could at least spell: “corduroy”. Boy!
