Interesting discussion of the baby boomers coming of age, serving as adults and now becoming "elders". The 3 distinct groups of young adults -- the squares, the activists and the hippies -- lost out to the "squares" in our adult world. Will some of those ideas and passions return as boomers age? Was the 20th century well served by the "square" ethic? It's a big demographic with big choices to make about the contributions yet to be made. Will our "elders" be contributors or deniers. Good food for thought. Recommended. KH
