You know, the more I read, the more I relate to your generation than the Baby Boomers. I guess I am a Tweener. What a dumb name.
We're the Watergate Generation but that's no fun either.
Hey, the boomers made darn sure we learned the crucial elements of Watergate, too. I remember singing a song, part of which went "18 minutes worth of tape weren't heeaaarrrd oooouuuut loooouuuudd!!"
Me too. I was born in '62, so by the "after '65" definition I am not strictly an X-er. However .... my folks were, although born in '35, drawn to the hippies and liked to hang out with people 5 to 10 years younger than them. I was a latch key kid from age 10 onward. I took longer than most to shed the Lefty baggage my folks tried to load me up with, but, thank God, I attended school at UCSB where I hung out with real Americans from places like Orange County and the rural Socal hinterlands. By the time I was a fully self sufficient adult I was substantially to the Right of my folks and was a member of the GOP.
