They say our children are our future. If there were ever a statement more facile and less stupidly true, it would have to be: the future is our future. But because our children are our future, it was tempting to do a little crystal-ball gazing yesterday. But first, a shameless plug today, the Norwalk Reflector will be debuting video on its Web site.
