The Baby Boomers are obsessed about aging (or should I aay not aging.) Its good in some ways as it motivates them to stay more fit and take better care of themselves but they have to face the fact that ultimatly, they are still getting older and I don't believe they are really facing that. They seem to decieve themselves that they can actually hold of the process indefinatly although botox, face lifts, tummy tucks, liposuction and drugs like Viagra do not turn back time, they only delude the user that they have.
Still, we humans are weak, and with a sizeable disposable income here in the US, we are very succeptible to the promise of youth despite the futility of it all. In short, we lack the wisdom that should come with age, its been displaced with the ferverant beleif we can buy enternaL youth. Laughable and sad at the same time.
This is the generation that came of age in the 60's when the counter culture was at its peak and I suppose they refuse to become what they so despised as youths.
