Twentysomethings to take over the world!

News brief: Amelia Lester, 26, was named the new managing editor of The New Yorker. As the news broke, reporters could hear the collective sound of thirtysomethings around the world choking on their coffee and cigarettes. Meanwhile, Forbes noted a spike in the number of resumes submitted by 21-year-olds for managerial positions at Goldman Sachs, Google and the White House.

Congratulations to Lester, a Harvard grad and former fact-checker for The New Yorker. You inspire the rest of us to get our shit together.
