In yesterday's Los Angeles Times, Claremont McKenna professor Frederick R. Lynch reviews Tom Brokaw's new book Boom! Voices of the Sixties. It's mandatory reading, but the tell all bit comes at the end.
[Brokaw] also hopes that retiring baby boomers will acquiesce to a reduction in their benefits as their numbers strain Social Security and Medicare. Don't bet on it!Professor Lynch is writing a new book about the impact of aging baby boomers on society. (I may be working with him on it next semester.) Should be fun!
