Friday Happy Hour for March 11, 2011

Every senior generation decries the banal idiocy of its junior generations. Remember how critical Boomers were of Generation X? 

Turns out Gen X was one of the most productive generations in a long while.  Then Gen Y just went off and fought two wars for us.

Historian Neil Howe points us to today’s Happy Hour:  a Millennial elected to Michigan’s state assembly last November.

As Howe points out:

Many positive Millennial (born 1982-200?) traits (positive attitude, results-orientation, teamworking, close to family and community) are all reflected here

Cheers

  1. That was one of the more encouraging things I’ve heard in a long, long time.
    Especially how she closed, “…if I don’t do that, then I don’t deserve to have this job again in two years.”

    I hope some folks in Jefferson City are reviewing that.
