Wise, Naked Baby Boomers

So I'm clicking every which way over at the NYT Magazine issue ostensibly about Baby Boomers. Some okay articles but no real fresh information.

Lots of people are talking about this piece - but again (like the television station discussed) I really didn't find much new.

The wisdom piece is mildly interesting - although my take is that when you're seven years old I hope you're a bit wiser than when you were six. What the brilliant insights about this are, I'm not sure.

Sara Davidson does a good job interviewing Dr. Robert N. Butler and Lenny Guarente. And there's a video interview. That old saying, "Some people eat to live, others live to eat," is officially obsolete. Now you don't eat to live.

Nora Ephron is, as usual, a funny interviewee.

Then I click on a film titled Naked. The promo copy says, "Ten women and men discuss what sex is like when you're old enough to know better."

Does this mean that they should know better than to discuss it?

  1. I loved the NY Times Magazine Baby Boomer Issue. You are right though the information could have been fresher.
