An Accurate Prediction

I remember hearing Ian Frazier, humor writer and baby boomer, say this on the radio in 1990: "Just wait until members of my generation get into the White House. America will never know what hit it."

He's sure, uh, gone 2 for 2 on that one.

Also: read this piece by Frazier. It's one of the funniest things ever.

Amusing, yes. Worth reading, yes. One of the funniest things ever? No.
Here is one by Larry Niven of which the same may well be said.
