Playing In the Great Outdoors

The title for this post was inspired by an Op-Ed  in yesterday's Los Angeles Times, The Great Fear Of the Great Outdoors, by Gary Ferguson.  A quote from the piece by an anonymous fifth grader, "I like to play indoors better 'cause that's where the electrical outlets are."  Christmas will be here in a few days, and I have to wonder, how many kids will get pads, phones, tablets, video games, and how many will get trikes, bikes, and other assorted outdoor play things?  Let's hope those North Korean hackers don't collapse the American power grid.  Half the country will curl up in a ball and die, while the rest of us will go out and ride our bikes, hike in the woods, and have a grand old time.

  1. That is incredibly sad, no, it's pathetic. I can only shake my head wondering what these little people will become.
