Spoken by the sixteen-year-old, sixth-grade-dropout daughter of
middle-class parents guesting on Dr. Phil, as she berated her mother for
being divorced from the harsh realities of teen-age life, noting that she
was not “just some rich white girl,” but, rather, someone who had suffered
the slings and arrows of outrageous hanging out at the skate-park.

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
