This is one of those great columns that says so much more than what it's seemingly saying.

The "Whatever" voice is the symbol of the whole disaffected, amoral, proudly disinterested pack running through our culture. I hear that voice every day in my work and it makes me want to scream. But then, I've been told all my life that I talk like...like I think MY opinion MEANS something, and don't I know that some people don't LIKE that tone in my voice?

Listen to the complete audio of this. And save it. It's a snapshot of a generation. And it sure as hell ain't the Greatest Generation.

" I talk like...like I think MY opinion MEANS something, and don't I know that some people don't LIKE that tone in my voice? "

It's made it virtually impossible for me to work congenially with people of a certain age, because they are enraged by any confident statement of opinion.

You can hear it every day, all day on NPR.
