The Twilight Zone
Sorry, but this won’t be a piece about Rod Serling. Nope, it’s about something that gave me such a start that I wanted to share it with the entire Boom This! readership in hopes we can stomp it out – thoroughly and quickly.
Reading an article in our local paper about how “Today’s seniors prefer belly dancing to bingo,” I found this gem: “As baby boomers – the generation born between 1946 and 1964 – advance toward twilight…”
Twilight? Twilight? This is a joke, right?
I’m guessing that the reporter who wrote this article is a young guy who thinks the sun exists only to shine on him and his generation. He’s already relegated those older than him to the darkness, where I suppose they won’t be too much bother (he can only hope).
Wow. That’s scarier than anything Rod ever produced.
