Does everyone deserve a trophy?
I've overheard the generation or two older than me in a huff over every child getting a trophy in little league. They'll gladly tell you (vent is more like it) how such an abomination is an indicator (of one of the many actually) of what ails the modern world.
I always shake my head in disbelief when I hear it:
Aren't these the same people that forty years ago would have gone home from the summer fair completely empty handed if it wasn't for the game with floating ducks that you pick up with a number on the underside?
That's the great thing about the water cycle:
Anyone can play and everyone's a winner, even if the prize maybe forgetting for a moment about who got a trophy and why!
