Actually, to be honest, that is for the most part true. Most teenagers these days are nice, respectful, and generally good people.
What I find is that the ones who are stupid are getting remarkably more
stupid. Ie, the cases of dumb are becoming more and more extreme. These
are the ones people remember and constantly hear about -not the good ones who are on track to becoming good, productive members of society.
