voting is for old people

there’s some controversy over this shirt being sold by urban outfitters, and the various theories that it’s intended to promote apathy among young [democratic] voters as part of some agenda by the old [republican] urban outfitters executive.

i’m all about stirring a little with a silly t-shirt….

… but there’s more here. and more i should talk about in some depth. there’s a hint of truth under this controversy… and it’s something i’ve been considering a bit in the past several weeks (and, if i am blessed with the platform from which to shout, you may be reading about that in a few months…)

in any case, i want to drop the thought here that political power is less and less about voting, and maybe the young (as in “not old”) people have seen a bit of that clue.

(then again, maybe i’m giving them too much credit 🙂 )
