Suburbia is just a big ol’ nightmare to you.

A lot of people picked that up immediately on seeing American Beauty. I try not to generalize, and I liked the story (hack though it be) because it was well acted and presented.

But now you got your wife Kate together again with Leo doing the same schtick: “Oh, no! We’re stuck in suburbia raising children and that was the last thing we wanted to do!”

Get over it, already. And maybe recognize for a moment that those of us who are privileged to share in the Western world’s wealth, so much so that we can bitch about how we want something different out of life, maybe shouldn’t be bitching about it?
