Recently the New York Times had an op-ed piece titled "Why Are We Still Governed by Baby Boomers and the Remarkably Old?"
The opinionator pointed out that Baby Boomers and the 'remarkably old' (those born before the end of WWII) tend to be out of touch with today's realities and, as politicians who are mostly old white men, look back of the days of their youth (the Fifties) as ideal and would like to return to 'simpler times'-- ignoring the fact that minorities and women were effectively marginalized or worse during that golden era.
It's a terrific essay, well worth reading. (See link above.) I've only touched on it because what jumped out at me was that phrase 'remarkably old.' That's me! I'm a pre-Boomer, therefore remarkably old.
Actually, I am embracing that term. I like it a lot better that senior citizen or elder or retiree or golden ager or wrinkly or geezer or any of a number of unfortunate designations.
Remarkably old sounds like an achievement. I'll take it.
