Last week I linked to an observant anti-boomer article by Meghan Daum of the LA Times. And then the boomer hate mail came in....

Meghan, you need a good trip. We have an extra ticket to the sold-out Crosby, Stills, and Nash Concert next month under the stars in Santa Barbara. No one will care that you're too young. I realize that it's not disco, but the music tries to compensate with harmony, meaningful lyrics, and social relevance.

Ms. Daum would probably castigate me for fitting the profile by suggesting this, but maybe she needs to take a pill and calm down regarding this particular issue.

About Meghan Daum's anti-boomer blast: After reading it, I still don't know why we touch such a nerve. Speaking of which, she has some. Oh, and was the review of the book about Carole King, Carly Simon and Joni Mitchell deliberately placed two pages away? If so, right on.

Great job, Meghan! Don't back down from this pack of has-been, self-righteous pricks.
