Boomers that deserve praise

This should have happened years ago.

The Stooges have finally graduated from the Fun House to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

The pioneering Ann Arbor punk rockers will be admitted into the Rock Hall's Class of 2010, organizers announced Tuesday. They'll be inducted March 15 alongside ABBA, Genesis, the Hollies and Jimmy Cliff at New York's Waldorf Astoria hotel.

The Stooges were becoming perennial also-rans on the Rock Hall ballot, always the sweaty, peanut butter-slathered bridesmaid but never the bride. Now, things have been righted for the visceral rockers, who formed in the late 1960s in Ann Arbor.
