School board member, Angela Cornett, is seen striking a 17-year-old standing in a Walmart parking space in Cartersville, Georgia.

*The young are supposed to be able to learn from the old, but it appears that in our “50 is the new 30″ age, we are losing some very valuable lessons.

Some elders are sacrificing wisdom to stay in the game.

According to the Today show, Angela Cornett, struck a 17-year old with her SUV when she attempted to hold a parking space for her friend that is a new mother by standing in the space.

She didn’t want her to have to walk too far. Cornett didn’t show the good judgment that is expected of a member of the school board.
