Can someone please share with me just how the ghetto became glamorous? Can someone plese tell me why bonfide criminals can become cultural icons? Can someone please explain why Jamie Foxx's opening dialog---chock full of bad taste jokes that I doubt even cons at the local prison would find funny--is a well paid comedian?

Can someone explain how MTV has made this lifestyle, these types of people and this absolute garbage musical genre THE accepted fad for our youth?

Look, I work in the ghetto. I teach kids from the ghetto and can be quite frank in asking how can any kid escape this lifestyle when it's not only exhibited--it's glamorized for all the world through grotesque individuals like Sean Combs? How can kids ever get away from a thug life? How can they ever escape living in squalor? How can girls from the inner city ever escape their own stigma by being referred to as 'ho's'?

How can things ever change?

I'm getting older. The generation gap now has gripped me. I work with this segment of society on a daily basis and am amazed that suburbia and it's kids somehow would want to embrace and salute it as the aimed-for way to live.

I've come to believe that NOTHING on the television is to be believed, that brainwashing is alive and well and exhibited through what's being foisted on our kids.

If only someone could've dropped a bomb on the Met last night.
