I come from the "boomer" generation, where I think we thought we would
change things by our sheer numbers.  In some way we did, for better or
worse.  In fact, our sheer numbers still influence what kind of products
services are advertised and marketed.  Since most of us are approaching
50 or already made it there, the sale of hair dye has gone up.

I remember reading somewhere that many who incarnated after WW2 were
those who had died in the war.  There lives had been rudely interrupted and
were eager to come back.  Also, they were tired of conflict and were those
who were against the Vietnam War.  (No, don't have any page numbers.  Just
a vague memory).
