According to the experts who make such decisions, I am a baby boomer. But, in real practical terms, I am not. A real baby boomer can tell you exactly where they were when Kennedy was shot. I cannot do that. I can only give you the educated guess that I was lying in my grandmother’s arms because she didn’t trust the parenting skills of my mother. I am a white, middle class, suburban male in his early fifties. I view life from that perspective. I take on popular culture and politics are shaped from that perspective. My goal in writing is purely selfish. It allows me the opportunity to clarify my thinking and share the conclusions I come to. If anyone reads what I have to say, that is great. If anyone enjoys what I have to say, that is awesome. If anyone is moved by what I say, you need to move on and pay attention to somebody else.
