Boomer Retirement: Hell No; We Won't Go!

The boomers, because of their age and experience, are among the best and most valuable in our work force. That’s not bragging; we’re no smarter than our kids. Simply because of our experience and judgment, we are the most valuable of the 150 million workers in the country. What do you suppose the reaction of the rest of the business world if one day (or one year) we all decided to quit?


The boomers are not going to “go gentle onto that good night.” And if they began to do so in large numbers, our society would provide incentives to keep them from disrupting things. That just makes sense.

Besides, if we all did retire tomorrow, what the heck would we do?

Eye Remember... April 10:


It was the end of the world to some boomers; the end of rock & roll to others.

On April 10, 1970, Paul McCartney announced that the Beatles were no more. It was great while it lasted, but it was too good to last long.

Rock & Roll evolved; but it was, indeed, the end of an era.

On a much brighter note, on April 10, 2005, Tiger Woods won the Masters golf tournament... for the fourth time!






And now, a word from our sponsor:

The BBHQ Joke of the Week
This has all the footprints of funny, weird man, Steven Wright:

What's another word for thesaurus?

I used to work in a fire hydrant factory. You couldn't park anywhere near the place.

I used to be an airline pilot. I got fired because I kept locking the keys in the plane. They caught me on an 80-foot stepladder with a coathanger.

I saw a bank that said '24 Hour Banking,' but I don't have that much time.

One time I went to a drive-in in a taxi cab. The movie cost me $95.

I went to a 7-11 and asked for a 2x4 and a box of 3x5s. The clerk said, 'ten-four.'

I went down the street to the 24-hour grocery. When I got there, the guy was locking the front door. I said, 'Hey, the sign says you're open 24 hours.' He said, 'Yes, but not in a row.'

Have a great week. We'll share the fun again next Monday.
