    I often feel just a bit self-conscious when I write to a community that is mostly a generation younger.

    But this grey hair has wisdom in its follicles. When we advise younger progressives to remember the days when women couldn't XXX, when voting was not allowed, when we were photographed and classified (yes, I'm sure the FBI still has me!) we are trying to get their young %^&* off the computer desk chair and out to vote.

    I just watched the newest Star Trek movie. It's been 46 years of them. At the first the series' emphasis on racial equality, population growth (carbon footprint) and political money games was a sub-rosa insurrection. This latest movie debates the morality of a drone strike! (Did you notice?)

    Our generation still has a lot to say. PLEASE don't write us off.
