There are some things I’ll never understand.
There are plenty of things wrong with America, and I believe that much of it can be traced back to the baby boomers’ love of The Beatles. Don’t get me wrong: I like John Lennon and I admire George Harrison. They are both leaders and innovators, and I’m willing to forgive the fact that they are boomer icons.
I just want to know something very simple: Who told Paul McCartney that he is relevant? When I find the guy who encouraged McCartney to produce an album at age 65 and sell it via Starbucks, I’m going to kick that guy in the shins.
[Side note to Baby Boomers: you didn’t invent sex, you weren’t the first generation to experiment with drugs, and you are draining my pension plan. I’m a bitter Gen X woman who will stick you in a shabby nursing home at the first chance I get. Don’t try me.]
