BACK IN THE mid-1960s, my aunt's husband did what a lot of other husbands (and wives) did with spouses who no longer filled their wish lists: traded her in for a younger model. Given the fact that my aunt was not even 30 at the time, you could rightly say that her eventual ex was a bit picky. In fact, given the age of the shiny new model he ended up choosing, Uncle "Johnny" was dangerously close to being known as "Uncle Holmesburg."
Lately, I've been thinking a lot about getting older. I'm not yet old, at least not by the standards of a society that has been so profoundly influenced by the Boomers, my generation. We have refused to succumb to the biological certainty of decay and decline, and have pulled pop culture along with us.
