John-- I was born in that generation, but was never a part of it. Please don't paint all of us with the same brush. I was not given everything as a child and do not expect anything to be given to me. I have earned my retirement by saving money and staying out of debt. My favorite saying is that the Flower Children of the 60s are the Blooming Idiots of the 21st century. I was not a flower child, nor am I a blooming idiot, but I know some of my generation (and their children who HAVE been given everything) who are.
