Off to the foothills

2008-04-21 16:00:10.022719+00 by Dan Lyke 2 comments

On Saturday we went up to Davis to have lunch with Alec[Wiki]. Great lunch, great time hanging out and chatting with him, we walked downtown where it was "Picnic Day" at UC Davis, which basically meant that the streets of downtown were filled with teeming hordes of drunk students.

I'm no stranger to drunk 20 year olds, but the particular nature of... well... I must be getting old, because I wept for our future.

We then headed the additional hour and a half up to Grass Valley because another of the kids who pops into our life occasionally has been working with the Nevada Union Theatrical Society[Wiki] on a production of The Boys Next Door[Wiki](here's the Wikipedia entry), a play about 4 developmentally disabled men living in a group home, and the evolution of the life of the social worker who watches over them.

That restored my faith in the youth of today. If you're around Grass Valley this week or next it's well worth an evening.

I've been exposed to enough truly remarkable Georgia Tech Co-ops to become to worried about our future. Some of them had some fairly disgusting (to me) habits and some of them were far more advanced in the social skills than I, some were born into luxury while others struggled to find next semesters tuition but all of them were or will become highly competent engineers.
