This Just In: More Losers Live With Their Parents

Gawker and the Times are wrong about this:

From the Times' long explication of The Troubled Kids Today: "Many spend their 20's and early 30's shuttling between college and work, professional school and travel, community service and internships, never earning enough to settle down, marry and raise a child." Right. Because the poor never get married and breed.
It's because they're sheepish and afraid -- not because they don't earn enough. Gawker is right to call them losers but not because they're poor. [12:27]  [ ]
