Age: The (Bigot's) Final Frontier

So I'm over at one of my favorite blogs today when I read this quote from the blogger's husband:
"I cannot wait, I cannot wait," says my husband, "until the last Baby Boomer is dead."

Somebody commented:
Wow. Steve sounds like a real asshole. As a boomer at the tail end of the demographic, I vow to live to 110 just to annoy him.

To which the blogger replied:
Oh, go take a Geritol...

So let me see if I've got this right. Substitute "Boomer" with "African American" or "woman" or "lesbian" or "person under 20" and it's all effed up. But people of my age cohort are cool to wish dead? Okay. Got it.

Good thing the younger generation will never be of this age so they'll be free from experiencing this kind of bigotry. Oh, wait...
