Let's see:

95% of 18-to-29-year-olds approve of interracial dating.

76% of 18-to-24-year-olds, in a sample that was nearly all male and half Republican, are so unfazed by homosexuality that lifting the ban on gays in the military would have no effect on whether they'd enlist. (The skew in this sample mimics the demographic makeup of the military itself.)

And surely there's a fair amount of overlap between these non-traditional young people and the 13-to-24-year-old males who say they went to 24% fewer movies in theaters this past summer than two summers earlier. (They watched a lot more home videos and DVDs, and spent more time playing video games and surfing the Net.)

And yet if Hollywood's box office slump continues, you know that idiots like Michael Medved will still say it's because of Hollywood's liberal values.
