FAKE NEWS SHARED BY BABY BOOMERS, BUT WHY?

    For online fans of social media there’s a drumbeat across many platforms saying the same thing: Baby boomers share more fake news than any other demographic. The usual cutoff age is sixty five, so I’ve got another year before I hit that wall. If you are a boomer I’ve got a question: Do […]

KNOWING ME, KNOWING YOU, (UH HUH)

    Knowing Me As a young child in an unsupervised moment one of my playmates decided to ride his trike. I hopped on the back axle where there was room to stand and gave him a big push. Except he pulled back on the handle bars just as I pushed and popped a wheelie […]

Carrying America’s Dirty Laundry, Vote Nov. 6, 2018

    Baby Boomers and Millennials get accused of so many things. Lazy parents produced entitled kids? You’ve heard that one? Millennials are too self absorbed to vote on Nov. 6, 2018? That’s been going around, too. The good news is not all Boomers are lousy parents and not all Millennials are spoiled little shits. […]

Dylan Song For 2018 Mid-Term Elections

Come senators, congressmen Please heed the call Don’t stand in the doorway Don’t block up the hall For he that gets hurt Will be he who has stalled There’s a battle outside And it is ragin’. It’ll soon shake your windows And rattle your walls For the times they are a-changin’.  

Life Long Learners Get Life Lesson Whether They Learn Or Not

  Life Lessons start early for writers, then they spend years figuring it out enough to make a joke, a poem, a short story, novella, novel. Maybe more, like a groundbreaking memoir.   If it’s worth learning, it’s worth writing about to drill it in.   Like most children of my generation, baby boomers, I […]

Dear Millennial Voters, All Of You, From Air And Water

  The future is closer than you think, and you, millennial voters, will have the final say on the future you want.   Now the last thing you give two damns about is a rant from a flowing silver haired, mustachioed, Mark Twain wannabe blogger. I get it.   But, sometimes people need a little […]

LIFE MARATHON ENDS EARLY FOR QUITTERS

    You’ve heard it, I’ve heard it, we’ve both felt it. We’re tired and don’t know why, because a life marathon doesn’t have a finish line.   Eating right, getting rest, and still tired. Is it a baby boomer lament, or just the way it is?   Maybe it’s time to sit it out […]

CANCER RESEARCH THROUGH BETTER BEER

    “I’m buying you a beer,” G said.   “That’s awfully nice, but you don’t have to,” I said.   “It’s that one,” he said.   “Which one?” I asked.   “At the bottom of the Daily Specials.”   I looked at the beer menu and didn’t see it.   “Where are the specials?” […]

BOOMER GENERATION BREAKS AMERICA ON TIME COVER BUT NOT IN OUR HEARTS

    At some point every generation can take credit for breaking America. The pinata of democracy is strong enough to take a few whacks.   It helps that those swinging the stick are usually too old to do much damage, but watching them still hurts.   Steven Brill explains it all for baby boomers, […]

FOR THE LADIES ON MEMORIAL DAY

Men get most of the attention on military holidays even it’s not Memorial Day For Men, or Male Veteran’s Day. Those days include women, but mostly as a second thought, and it’s military women. Please remember the men and women who died in uniform. They’ve earned our respect from the Civil War to Afghanistan. Young […]
