The Baby Boomer's Guide to the Galaxy: 1967
Newyorkgoomba on 03/09/2008
|Whether you accept the 1946-1964 era as the Baby Boomer timeline or, as some observers argue, the period 1942-1953, for us the 1950s was the first decade to shape our view of the world. I was born in 1947, smack dab in the middle of that first wave, adopted through Catholic Charities in New York City, raised by 1st generation Italian and Greek parents, and spending my formative years in the 'City That Never Sleeps'. This series will be a guide to my galaxy, focusing on key years within that six decade period known as my life. Welcome.|
The questions will be annotated with personal recollections but will be drawn from historical events, personalities and cultural references that should be familiar to fellow boomers or students of history or, for that matter, veteran Sploofusers.
1967: My 20th year and a turning point in my political development. A Junior in college, and Journalism major, my liberal political views were about to be hardened by a first hand view of the Vietnam War and later involvement in the anti-war movement. I spent parts of two summers working as a temp in the U.S. Post Office facility next to Madison Square Garden, joining my father in his second job.
