Today's youth: The Nasal Generation

The folks back east (yes, I am now in the Midwest), over at the NYT, are asking the question we all want answered in an article entitled "How Young Is Too Young to Have a Nose Job and Breast Implants?" At 21, I'm apparently well past the age people are when they decide to get their noses cracked open and fidgeted with by plastic surgeons. I also managed to go through high school without snorting Xanax, which, according to NY Magazine, has replaced being a prep school gangster among today's youth, at least on some especially relevant stretches of the Upper West Side.

What have I learned in reading about the current crop of teens? What it comes down to, for these young'uns, is that it's all about the nose, either making it smaller and more upturned or putting crushed prescription drugs up it. Some people just have too much time on their hands.
