I'm a boomer. When I did ironwork a 'boomer' referred to men whose home local unions didn't have enough work to support the membership, so they hit the road and worked out of different locals around the country. I was one of those too. I suppose I do fit the stereotype for my generation, such as it was, and now is. In my case Winston Churchill's quote describes it ... "If you're not a liberal when you're young you have no heart. If you're not a conservative when you're old you have no brains.
