I wasn't around yet when JFK was killed so this, like all things Camelot and Kennedy, has always been something Baby Boomers spoke of with cult-like fervor and left younger generations to just shrug off.
I'll admit to having being curious about the conspiracy theories at times but that was the extent of it.
It's hard for them to realize their time has passed and the twilight of life has come. The world so many activists of the day envisioned never came to pass. It was made worse, not better, by their naiveté, inexperience, arrogance and an experimental meddling with the nation's values and culture.
I can only hope the damage wrought by that generation isn't permanent.
Not so fast there, newzie. At fifty-four I’m still working hard to undo the idiocy of my generation — and my parents’ generation as well (ever heard of the New Deal?) But “the twilight of life?” D00d, get over yourself.
