Not that the baby boom didn’t produce as many geniuses as any generation. But grandeur seemed to slip away from genius, or genius slipped away from grandeur. Hard science was . . . hard. Brilliant minds were drawn to the social sciences. Psychology, sociology, and anthropology were funky and fun. You can’t talk your way out of an algebra problem.Just for the record: I was going on 5 when the first baby-boomers came on the scene. God, when I was born, the U.S. hadn't yet entered World War II.
