"My Turn"

Life is a series of collisions
with the future.

~Jose' Ortega y Gasset

        Once, at the University of California, a student got up to say that it was impossible for people of Ronald Reagan's generation to understand the next generation of young people. "You grew up in a different world,"the student said.  "Today we have television, jet planes, space travel, nuclear energy, computers..."
       While the student paused for a breath, Ronnie said,"You're right.  We didn't have those things when we were young. We invented them."
