Ruben Navarrette:

Of course, there is always the chance that Americans -- especially those in their teens and 20s -- will step in and fill the void by leaving their air-conditioned homes, video games, and $3 coffees and going to work in 110-degree weather.

But whom are we kidding? That's just more wishful thinking.

Noontime high temperature in July and August in Baghdad (where thousands of Americans in their teens and 20s are spending a lot of time): 120 degrees.
