Baby Boomer Die Die Die

Every so often, I am forced to remember how much my generation, or as I ought to say ma-my ge-generation, is hated, in the abstract, by my younger friends.

I can see the point - after all, I despise yuppies and libertoonians and patronizing liberals too; but so do a lot of my actual friends my own age. We were a very radical generation and a lot of us never sold out to any significant extent. It is just a shame that so many people I know did.

Still, we were a generation with pretty good music, a generation that acted as foot-soldiers for feminism and gay liberation, a generation that knew how to party.

We deserve a bit better than to be damned without appeal...
