More make-believe …

…  only not fiction: Of Thee I Sigh: Baby Boomers Bust | World Affairs Journal.

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.
