So I work with a number of people who are in their 20s.  Today, at our mornign meeting a few of them had NO CLUE who the Hatfield & McCoys were.  It came up because of the genetic condition that the McCoys might have that would predispose them to being an angry people (nevermind that they’re likely Scots) They looked at me like I was stupid for expecting them to at least know that they had a feud.

 It makes me wonder what the hell do these kids know about?
