A short history lesson on the origins of the American Labor Day.
This has been quite the week for the All American frat boy Ryan Lochte. He started the week describing his home country as “Lochte Nation”. He had to endure the media created Lochte-Phelps rivalry. His mother got a little TMI with the revelation that her son only has time for one night stands. In this montage of classic Lochte interviews, it appears that he’s taken a thousand times more hits than teammate Michael Phelps. I hope it wasn’t laced with Chik Fil A sauce…. Clearly, though it was a big week for Lochte, winning five medals out of six events. If this is his last games, he ends his career with 11, the second most of any American male Olympian. Sadly, though, when he returns home, he’ll find out that we really weren’t paying attention. We’ve been quite busy fighting the 60′s culture wars by eating or boycotting chicken sandwiches. Too bad some haven’t evolved, as time would have been better spent on…Lochte.
Our brave fighting soldiers are under the most intense conditions imaginable. I’m impressed with how they manage to let off some steam and unleash some creativity as well. I believe that this millennial generation, who are generally positive about our country’s future, and embrace diversity, tolerance and openness, will be the generation that will save this country from the mess we’re in. They are the next “greatest generation”.
