      My folks, born in 1917 and 1926, are not like that. They were greatly affected by growing up in the Depression (and I get to hear all about that). Their response was to become frugal, not greedy. It is not that useful to overgeneralize or stereotype any group of people, whether a generation, national or ethnic group, religion, gender, sexual orientation or whatever.

      My parents were truely depression babies born in 1929 and 1932, and good thing for it. My parents taught me how to make ends meet - they never had a credit card, and they were lucky to graduate high school. But they had a garden, chickens, lots of canning and good ole depression homestyle cooking.

      Life's lessons are not all the same for everyone.
