Reading through a couple of current stories, there are some interesting similarities between our young would-be arsonist, currently facing a few legal issues in Portland, and the young would-be bombers of Greenwich Village (currently incarcerated). The purported males, in each case, have meticulously adopted a special "look" - apparently designed to showcase their unique and inherent hipness but which appear virtually identical - and both appear to be crack Art History majors, recently released from an institution of Higher Vegetation.
Okay, that latter part's just a guess, but very likely accurate.
Both have managed to shack up with a well-off 20-something sweetie, which enables them to battle bravely against The Man without suffering any serious material discomfort in the process:
Turzhanskiy would continue to live with his girlfriend in Portland, Ehlers said. His girlfriend's father, a doctor who works out of state, has agreed to pay Turzhanskiy $12 an hour to do transcriptions for his medical practice.
Gliedman, 27, is the daughter of a prominent real estate agent and a top-rated New York oncologist, CBS 2 reported. She was nine months pregnant at the time of her arrest and gave birth to a baby girl soon afterward.
It's especially touching that the latter sweetie has given birth to another ward of the state; it really adds that special extra flavor to their selfless, ongoing battle against the "rich". Of course, that assumes that her wealthy helicopter parents don't swoop in to care for the offspring of their precious snowflake - which, given their apparent support to date, is hardly out of the question.
And that illustrates yet another commonality: the wealthy parental support of the snowflakes seems unconditional, and at odds with any semblance of common sense. Had you tried to commit arson or other acts of mayhem, would your girlfriend's (or boyfriend's) dad have agreed to give you a "job" while you were under house arrest?
