Give The Kid An "A"

"'[Proof that President Bush told the truth about the war] doesn’t matter,' the young man, repeated. 'People don’t look at ‘the truth’ as ‘the truth’ anymore. There’s just what you believe, and how the other guy is wrong.'

'But that describes feelings, not truth,' I said.

'Right. Your feelings are your truth.'

'When did this happen?' I asked, 'because I didn’t get the memo.'

My son gave a wry laugh and piped in, 'around the time we couldn’t decide what the meaning of ‘is’ was!'”
