Restless with Anticipation

A friend sent me this Seattle P-I fluff piece on intergenerational conflicts as the Boomers turn 60.

It's all about "young adults - members of generations known as X and Y - wondering what will be left for them, especially as the cost of living rises, national debt increases, and as the huge population of aging boomers begins to devour Social Security and company pensions." ... and student loan debt, credit card debt, temp/low-wage/low benefit jobs...

"Young adults also are ready to wrestle away their piece of the pie from boomer politicians, from "helicopter parents" who hover over their adult kids, and even from aging rockers who have yet to give up the stage.

The question is: will boomers let them - and recognize they can't rule forever?"
