Representation of 'Our Youth'?

Dear Source:
During the Human Services presentation in the finance committee hearing of budget requirements, Senator Serville continued his disrespect of 'other generations' by chiding the seasoned commissioner and telling him to 'get into the 20th century technology' and make more information accessible on line.
First of all, I do believe we are currently in the 21st century. Second, I take great offense at Senator Serville referring to another senator as liken to his 'grandfather' in reference to Senator Davis and adding to his total lack of respect for those who possess a greater grasp of the reality of the problems we face in the territory and actually DOING something about it vs. pandering for special interest votes. Age is not an issue and should not be part of EVERY dissertation uttered by Senator Serville. At the age of 32, Senator Serville should not be classified as a 'youth.'
Senator Serville is indicative of someone who has yet to grow up and possesses the inexperience of a minimally educated jock, and in turn, gives our youth a bad name. This in addition to his infamous 'suit, lobster and steak' speech as well as his inappropriate racist KKK tirade on the senate floor and his misguided voting for Act 6905, which hurt all of 'his/my' people, demonstrates a lack of maturity. Senator Serville should also not utter more than two syllable words on the senate floor if he does not know what they mean or what context they should be used in. He embarrasses himself and the institution.
Yes we need youthful ideas and new ideas resulting in solutions for all Virgin Islanders. Unfortunately, Serville's ideas are his father's/mother's ideas and not of the youth he professes to represent.
