    When I describe the Beatles, JFK or the moon landings to my nieces/nephews, I am talking about something as removed in history from them as World War I was when I was their age.

    When I was the age of my HS senior nephew, the music of Al Jolson was as new to me as the White Album is to him.

    The main difference? Color film and video.

    I made a reference to "Ah, Grasshopper, snatch the pebble from my hand" to a couple of adults after our tennis drill last night, and they had no clue. One of them asked me if it was from a Jackie Chan movie.

    My nephew loves the new Star Trek movies, but he couldn't pick William Shatner out of a lineup.

    I'm the only 40 year old in a morning newsroom when no one else over 24. I feel fifty years older than them.

    When I know that staying up late for postseason baseball will make me a wreck the next day even when I'm stone cold sober.
