What's a boomer to do?
That seems to be the current obsession of Bill Keller, columnist (and former executive editor) of The New York Times.
In his column on Monday, he squandered hundreds of words about the Baby Boom generation, rehashing the argument over whether it is self-absorbed and concluding (hold your breath here!) that "we are an entitled bunch."
Then he used this creaky springboard to jump all over so-called entitlement programs: Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security.
He bought the bogus conservative argument that these programs are unsustainable, and he falsely argued that cuts in military spending or raising taxes on the rich couldn't possibly fill the funding gap.
