The last time I visited King’s Island, which was perhaps 10 years ago, I was astonished at the t-shirts that were being worn. Many of the kids were wearing t-shirts with slogans, and pictures, that were vulgar, profane, rude, violent, and disgusting.
This time, it seems that youth dress has swung back a little bit. The slogans were sarcastic and a little rude, but mostly civil and even somewhat clever.
So, not everything in the world is getting worse.
I also noticed that *everybody* had tattoos, from the 14 year old kids all the way up through the 87 year old grandmas. Large, brightly colored, and in very conspicuous places.
