Generation Jones

Geitner Simmons, a good ol' boy who writes for the editorial page of the Omaha World Herald, hasn't been blogging a whole lot this past year, and I fell out of the habit of checking his rather eclectic blog. Which means that when he put up this post back in April I missed it until now. I think to a certain extent these generational tags are used by marketers (what isn't?) but at the same time I think they're also useful on a macro scale for talking about cohorts of people who have certain shared experiences, whether those are cultural/historical or political/historical. There's no question that those of us who came of age in the 1970s were living in a world the Woodstock Generation brought into existence, and we didn't like it a damn bit. It explains a lot of things about the 80s.
