War, babies

New meme for you to be aware of: the looming generational conflict, in which (it appears) the children of boomers will be set against each other, tearing each other limb from well-clad limb, in an attempt to retain access to their free-born internships. That's apparently what's behind the tear-up in Greece...

Anyway, your reader:

Ruth Sunderland provides an overview

The Guardian says, class of 2009, go back to bed and prepare for lethargy

David Willetts does some thinking

Solutions? Christopher Buckley had a radical idea: a mandated age of death.
