Can We Talk?

Survey says 79% of respondents believe there's a major difference in the point of view of younger people and older people.

Compared to 74% in 1969 and 60% in 1979.

Link to Pew Research Center report "Talkin' 'Bout my Generation".

Link to "Growing Old in America: Expectations vs. Reality".

Info tidbit on the daily activities of older Americans, i.e. 65 and up.

Taking a nap (40%) beats using the Internet (28%).

Although I'm a little suspicious of the naptime percentage, as 77% claimed to watch more than 1 hour of TV. What better way to fall asleep!

On the other hand, 83% say they read a book, magazine, or newspaper.
