    So, why not post the entire article, why don'tcha?

    Is this going to be a the beginning of a slew of OPs complaining about baby boomers, why we are the cause of all the world's problems, and that we don't face reality?

    Pick something more interesting.

    Sorry, I thought it would be better to post the whole thing. I apologize if that goes against board etiquette.


    Although this thread could possibly turn into that, that's not my intention. I just thought this was an interesting article and wanted to see the opinions of others.

    Dear Wallyj84, no problem. Word has it on the street that karma has forgiven you.

    Chicagosam: yeah, what you said, boomer doomers. I'm so tired of young non-boomer pseudo expats asking me "What do you do?" And if I tell them they act as if I'm personally responsible world world hunger.

    GenX doom and gloomers, ACH!! I presume I'll be dead by then. But thanks. I can still have futuristic nightmares. :dead:

    Not an etiquette thing, it's the rules of the site not to post whole articles, but rather a portion to which you expect to engage a discussion and with the link to the whole article.
    I've edited your initial post and apologize if it was not the highlight you wanted for discussion.
    As a Baby Boomer myself, my father told me when I was 30 I needed to start planning for the future. I'm glad I listened.

    AH, I see. I'm used to other boards where the rule is to post the entire article.
