Re: “Smells Like Bob Dylan

First, you're in dire need of a copy editor. Second, the 'boomer' generation, in reality, isn't one single generation. In the US the term "baby boomers" are meant to cover anyone born between 1946 and 1964. Even as a "generality" do you expect someone born in 1964 to have the same social/cultural perspective as someone born in 1946? I really hope not. If you insist on generalities, this differentiation may help: 1. Baby Boomer cohort #1 (born from 1946 to 1954) Memorable events: assassinations of JFK, Robert Kennedy, and Martin Luther King, Jr., political unrest, walk on the moon, risk of the draft into the Vietnam War, anti-war protests, social experimentation, sexual freedom, civil rights movement, environmental movement, women's movement, protests and riots, mainstream rock from the Beatles to Jimi Hendrix experimentation with various intoxicating recreational substances Key characteristics: experimental, individualism, free spirited, social cause oriented Key members: U.K. Prime Minister Tony Blair, U.S. Presidents Bill Clinton and George W Bush 2. Baby Boomer cohort #2 or Generation Jones (born from 1955 to 1964) Memorable events: Watergate, Nixon resigns, the Cold War, the oil embargo, raging inflation, gasoline shortages, Jimmy Carter's imposition of registration for the draft, punk or new wave from Deborah Harry and techno pop to Annie Lennox and MTV Key characteristics: less optimistic, distrust of government, general cynicism Key members: Douglas Coupland, Barack Obama, who many national observers have referred to as post-Boomer, and more specifically part of Generation Jones
