"The future is really bright for people like you; our time is pretty much through."
Last weekend, I met with a college friend, a Marine Corps captain who fought in the initial push into Iraq, back in 2003.
"It's pretty much over for white guys like me," my friend said in the same manner someone surrenders the keys to a house after a ill-fated attempt to keep current on the mortgage, except this Marine captain wasn't turning over a home; he was referring to civilization and the United States itself.
"You guys are the future."
