I watched the NBC Sandy Relief Concert Friday night and noted pretty quickly how many baby boomer age folks participated, including Billy Joel, Bruce Springsteen, Steven Tyler, Jon Bon Jovi, Jon Stewart, Whoopi Goldberg, Danny DeVito, Brian Williams, Matt Lauer. The event raised $23 million for relief efforts for the Red Cross, a record amount raised in an event of this kind. I am always happy when aging baby boomers step forward in selfless ways. It reinforces my prediction that baby boomers, as feared by generations above and below them, won't bankrupt the country as they age. Rather, they'll come up with creative ways to help the country, financially and otherwise. And P.S. Not many younger stars were in evidence at the relief concert. Mmmm.
