The Invincible Dragon

Just got quoted in the online follow-up to the New York Magazine article "The Young Invincibles" which I commented on here.

The quote in question: "Never has Johnny Rotten's prediction of 'No future for you,' seemed more accurate."

Of course this is slightly taken out of context, it makes a lot more sense as:
It doesn't mention that recent college graduates, besides facing a sluggish job market where finding one salaried job with chances for promotion that will see you through to retirement is a nostalgic fantasy, face the highest amount of student loan indebtedness ever seen in this country, are also looking at a housing market which is prohibitively inflated to many. Never has Johnny Rotten's prediction of "No Future for you," seemed more accurate.

Man, I'm going to have to start writing better, if respectable media sources are going keep quoting me.

Heh, heh, heh... Oh well, at least it's not "Well duh!" this time... although considering the obvious pandemic lack of adequate health care coverage for young people in this country, perhaps it should have been "Well duh!"
