What is the cultural experience of The Class of 2011?

It's time take a look at the Mindset List for the Class of 2011, an annual gift from Beliot College. If you haven't seen the list before, the 70 items provide a look at the cultural touchstones that have shaped the lives of today's first-year students, most of them born in 1989. For them, Alvin Ailey, Andrei Sakharov, Huey Newton, Emperor Hirohito, Ted Bundy, Abbie Hoffman, and Don the Beachcomber have always been dead.

Plus reading the list is a quick way to make even a "young academic" feel OLD! LOL Check out the sampling below before you click to the full list.

# They never “rolled down” a car window.
# Michael Moore has always been angry and funny.
# They have grown up with bottled water.Bottled Water
# General Motors has always been working on an electric car.
# Nelson Mandela has always been free and a force in South Africa.
# Pete Rose has never played baseball.
# Women’s studies majors have always been offered on campus.
# Being a latchkey kid has never been a big deal.
# Thanks to MySpace and Facebook, autobiography can happen in real time.
# They learned about JFK from Oliver Stone and Malcolm X from Spike Lee.
# Most phone calls have never been private.
# MTV has never featured music videos.
# They never saw Johnny Carson live on television.

Wow to have never "rolled down" a car window or experienced Carson "live." I think I will keep my world...old and cranky as it can be. I have a pair of rabbit ears around here somewhere....
