Meet the crown of creation

This by way of Father Smiff's favorite authority, Henny Dougman, who passes it on from Bloomberg (no link, sorry):

"The last of the U.S. baby boomers have ended up poorer than the prior two generations, including those born during the Great Depression and World War II.

... The median household income of Americans born between 1956 and 1965 was $64,179 in 2010, when the group was in their 45-to-54 peak earning years... less than the $73,401 earned in 2000 by the generation born between 1946 and 1955, when they were in their peak earning years, and the $71,617 earned in 1990 by those born from 1936 to 1945.

(All expressed in 2009 dollars.)

Something marvelously bone-in-the-throat about that, eh? My putatively anti-material broad-beamed middle merit-class generation, with its premature sanctimonious Woodstock enlightenment, went on to become, with equal farcicality, the apex generation of the utterly crass and craven "American dream".
