What really bothers me is the kids themselves, and what they think is important in life. I'm not talking about their pride in being Italian or being religious, I'm talking about their LIFESTYLE priorities, their fanatical obsession with how they look, their low morals, their excessive drinking and sexing, their combative, argumentative way of handling conflicts and problems, etc. etc. It's like they only aspire to grow up to be adult Guidos and Guidettes, and nothing more! Watching the show is like watching a Real World type version of the Jerry Springer show! What makes me so sad, is that there really are people who are like that, and unfortunately, there are A LOT of them! No wonder America is falling behind in so many of the technical and scientific fields --- if this group of kids (and the people who go on the Jerry Springer Show) are representative of any sizable portion of the youth in this country, we're in big, big trouble!
