Musings about the 1980's and Generation X

Generation X – “From everything we know about them, they’re savvy, skeptical and self-reliant; they’re not into preening or pampering, and they just might not give much of a hoot what others think of them or whether others think of them at all.”  (pewresearch.org – Paul Taylor and George Gao) 1,020 more words
