The millennial interns in my office have such different values than the older folks that it’s pretty amusing to watch them interact. I straddle the line a bit (not in age but in outlook) and am far closer to the interns in worldview, behavior and beliefs. Because I am not set in my ways, I don’t react with such consternation as the older folks do when an intern just does not give a crap about what the old fogeys see as incontrovertibly important.
The Cold War is mind-boggling to younger people, though. I understand even though I lived through the last decades of it. It seems totally crazypants looking in the rearview.
