I'm Getting Too Old For This S**t

Reading about the case in the news where a Florida mother has been charged with felony child neglect for letting her 7-year-old son go to a local park unattended (with a cell phone) brought into sharp focus how much our society has changed over the last 50 years.

When I was a kid (here we go...) I wandered around unsupervised until the street lights came on, or until I got hungry or skinned my knee. Of course, that was then and this is now - but WHY have things changed so much for the worse?

While we tend to recall the past through that golden haze of time, our society has certainly taken a bit of a nose dive in some regards. The "causes" are many, and you can likely come up with some of your own - but it certainly leaves me with the feeling that "I'm getting too old for this s**t".
