boomer back­lash

The Walrus - - LETTERS -

I never thought I would read such a self-right­eous, sanc­ti­mo­nious, and self-serv­ing ar­ti­cle from a priv­i­leged baby boomer in your pro­gres­sive mag­a­zine as Sharon Bu­tala’s re­cent es­say about the dis­crim­i­na­tion she faces be­cause of her age (“Against Ageism,” April). I am also a baby boomer, and I will tell you what keeps me awake at night: en­vi­ron­men­tal degra­da­tion, ur­ban poverty, and so­ci­etal in­equal­ity. In­stead of whin­ing about age, An­nie Demir­jian Toronto, ON I help pre­pare the lead­ers of to­mor­row so that they can tackle these chal­lenges.
