such a shame that ignorance is so rampant in the profession of journalism. what happened to this once great profession? terrible.

how can one read this article when in the very first sentence the author makes a significant mistake. Obama is not so-called "post-baby boomer," Obama is baby boomer. a late baby boomer, yet still a baby boomer.

when journalists believe they can simply make up what ever is sexy and flashy or a dig at a generation or whatever for what ever reason -- well this country has enough problems without its mainstream media becoming a fashion media.

get the fundamental facts straight and move from there!
