Not to paint an entire generation with overly broad brush strokes.
Link to January 1 New York Times article, "Boomers Hit New Self-Absorption Milestone: Age 65".
Excerpt: They are living longer, working longer and, researchers say, nursing some disappointment about how their lives have turned out. The self-aware, or self-absorbed, feel less self-fulfilled, and thus are racked with self-pity.
Guess this will always be our song, fellow Boomers. (Interesting to note that of the 4 original members of The Who, only Keith Moon is a Boomer by birth. 8/23/1946. Daltrey and Entwistle were born '44, Townshend in '45.)
