I have a lot of hope for the millennials, the young people just coming up. They're going to get sick of living in an ethical vacuum and sick of political paralysis.Their brains are going through the final stage of development where it arrives at the ability to make judgments. They are going to judge the Boomers and their X'er successors harshly and they're going to remind us that Americans are capable of valiant action even without the trappings of jingoism and sports metaphors.This is the first time I have read anything written by a Boomer that even acknowledges the existence of Generation X, but it does not surprise me one bit that the first reference I come across is a pathetic attempt to share the blame of the disaster which is currently unfolding before our eyes. On behalf of GenX, I politely decline your generous offer to serve as your generation's scapegoat; I believe one must give credit where credit is due, and this is unmistakeably your baby, Boomer.
