And this may be the year we finally elect a president of the USA
from the pre-Boom "Silent" generation
What do you know - you're quite right!
Bush Senior and Jimmy Carter were both born in 1924 and the next president to be
born was...Trump. In 1946.
If he wins again, that virtually guarantees NO one from the Silent Generation
will ever become president.
The first Boomer was elected in 1992 and here we are 28 years later with
no Silent yet.
The LDS Church moved off the Strauss/Howe power arc a long time ago,
as it was founded by members of the Transcendental Generation who were
pushed out of power in the decade after the Civil War on the political
stage,but the life-tenured LDS apostles stayed on until they died (every
church president from 1830 to 1901 being born between 1801 and 1814).
Where JFK sent word forth from his time and place that the torch had
been passed to his generation in 1961,the first president of the USA
younger than Kennedy was Carter,elected in 1976,and the first LDS president
younger than Kennedy was Monson,who succeeded in 2008...when JFK was
assassinated the sitting LDS president was older than Herbert Hoover
and would be succeeded by a man older than FDR.

In the meantime, does anyone know why, just because Gen 13 is also known as Gen
X, that meant that the next two generations "had" to get named Y and Z? Isn't
that a bit too ominous? As if we were living in the End Times or something? And
what will the next generation get named? (I assume that generation starts either
this year or next year.)
Neil Howe (William Strauss died in 2007) uses the name "Homeland" for the
generation after the "Millennials" and has the oldest of them already
in their teens...
The World Trade Center towers MUST rise again,
at least as tall as before...or terror has triumphed.
