Quote of the Day

Baby Boomers are embarrassing the entire nation through their misguided obsession with remaining youthful in both appearance and behavior in spite of the biological facts and social imperatives working against them. Traditionally, older people in most societies have functioned as wise, respected mentors to younger generations. But how could any young person today possibly take advice from a fifty-three-year-old man wearing a baseball cap turned backward, perched on roller blades, who is contemplating a stint at Burning Man?
