    Not necessarily. It depends on the demographer. And some class those born in the late 50's/early 60's as the Generation Jones because they have so little in common with Boomers.

    As one of them, I have to say that I am way more Gen X than Boomer and have no identification with Boomers at all.

    Homeland generation is a post 9/11 name - but it seems that the jury us still out as to whether that name will stick for the long haul.

On the other hand, if you consider the 20 window to define a generation, Mr. Japanfan would be a boomer because he was born in 1963. But his parents were 20 when he was born - whereas my dad was 42 when I was born - and his dad was too young to go to war. So, he's really not a boomer in my opinion. And it seems at times that we are of a different generation - he calls me 'a child of the 70s'.
    I was born in 1953, clearly a boomer. My Dad was born in 1929, not old enough to had served in WWII. He was in Korea, however. 24 was not an uncommon age to be a father in the '50s.

    It's funny that you and I are two different generations yet our fathers were both born in the same year.

    I do remember life before CDs. I had a Fisher Price record player that I used to listen to Michael Jackson on. I thought "Beat It" was about vegetables.
    Eh, I'm sure you are right -- but their MTV (especially MTV now) is nothing like it was back in my day (when we had to walk uphill both ways on the way to school, barefoot and in the snow, grumble grumble).

    I was born in December 1981 so I don't know that I really feel a true part of Generation X!

    I saw on the news earlier that New Jersey is currently having a post-Sandy baby boom. Since I lived without electricity for 8 days I'm not the least bit surprised to hear this.
