Wow....this is the first time I've ever seen my birth year (1965) included in Gen X!!! 1965 had always been the year without a generation.

Everything I've ever seen has the boomers ending in 1964, but the earliest I had ever seen Gen X starting was 1966 -- usually it was 1967 though. The period between Kennedy and the Summer of Love (1967) was usually a fairly undefined period lost in limbo -- which is fine with me!

I don't fit into either generation, and neither does anyone else in my peer group that I know. Still, it's good to know that Gen X has somehow managed to learn from the mistakes of Baby Boomer parents.

The whole Benjamin Spock/Peace-Love/Groovy thing just didn't cut it. I'm glad to see that the MTV generation isn't letting their own mind-numbing hogwash influence the way they raise their kids!

Maybe there's hope after all.....
