Boomer backlash: why?

One of my “beats” at work now is tracking aging baby boomers. Sunday, I wrote a story about how boomers will be shedding a lot of “stuff” in the next decade as they downsize their homes.

As was the case with my recent Sunday story on aging boomers who will work past retirement, the reader comments were filled with boomer bashing.

What's up with that? Theories welcome.
