Correction from a reader : Jones, not Cusper

 We have a name,  and it is 'Jones':  

One of my readers from CA was kind enough to point out my error in calling Obama the "Cusper"  president,  and those of us who thought we were Boomers and knew we were not Xers as the "Cusper"  generation.  We are Generation Jones,  and Obama's ideology resonates with us because it is Jonesian.  He (or she?) provided this link to an excellent Op-Ed piece on Generation Jones in USA today:  http://blogs.usatoday.com/oped/2009/01/stuck-in-the-mi.html

For the importance of this,  see the wonderful texts of Howe and Strauss,  The Fourth Turning, and Generations,  available @Amazon.com
