IN THE MAIL: Anya Kamenetz’s Generation Debt, sounding a theme I’ve heard before (“An emerging spokesperson for a new generation passionately and persuasively addresses the grim state of young people today-and tells us how we can, and must, save our future.”) It all sounds so early-1990s, but I suspect that we’ll hear it a lot in the coming election cycle. And as the whole PorkBusters thing illustrates, there’s a there, there.

Also Frank Warren’s rather cool PostSecret : Extraordinary Confessions from Ordinary Lives — based on the website of the same name, of course.
