    Throw in a military draft and you might see a different attitude, though.

    Boomers have a "cred" and value system simply by virtue of being boomers that more closely aligns them with the young people of this generation than the generation that preceded the Boomers. Pot, birth control and pop culture helped that.  It makes sense that your students would be interested and sympathetic.  You're also a teacher so they naturally see you as somebody that helps. Of course twenty years from now when they reap whatever it is we  leave at their feet their attitudes may also change, not towards you but maybe towards Boomers (and X'rs) in general.
