I believe the children are the future:

On Friday, C-SPAN 2 covered the student journalism conference put together by Campus Progress and The Nation.

Some of the things you might have heard on that oh-so-innocent channel:

"The nation lost its head even while it was giving head." - Katrina vanden Heuvel

"For too long we've loved you college students only for your bodies." - Katrina vanden Heuvel (re: liberal adults' perceptions of student activism)

Helen teaches them well and lets them lead the way:

Sidenote: Highlight of the journalism conference may have been this gem from Helen Thomas:

"Now I wake up in the morning and say, 'Who do I hate today'?"

Nice.
