Well, don't we (baby boomers) feel special? I'm sure many of us are not feeling the love as our retirement funds slowly dwindle away, while we continue to sit in the tiny cubicles ensuring systems for billion dollar companies continue to do the job enabling consumers to go about their daily tasks not knowing what makes that cash pop out of that machine.
