What are the kids doing for the summer?

It makes you wonder. It seems most kids want everything handed to them. They do not want to work for it.

One young man (Marshall Patrick) is a Norwalk Reflector carrier in Monroeville who works his beat delivering the newspaper on foot now. Why? Because someone stole his bike. Probably someone who doesn't have a summer job or ever had to work for what they want, so now they just take it. What is wrong with the younger generation? I know we are all guilty of wanting our kids to have better than we had, but I think we all forget that we had to work for it.

Whoever took Marshall's bike, I hope you have the decency to return it. Marshall is a fine young man who does an excellent job on his route and he deserves to have his bike.
