The Week in Pictures: Aging Boomers Edition

News yesterday was that Michelle Obama had received her AARP (Angry Advocates for Rapacious Pensioners) membership card in the mail, and I had a momentary flash of hope that the Obamas might be considering early retirement.  Nope: she turned 50, and the White House is throwing a big birthday party for her.  Now is Michelle a “baby boomer”?  The demographic cutoff has always struck me as somewhat arbitrary, but given the Millennialism of the Obamas’ worldview, it’s very tempting to kick them out regardless of the guidelines, and leave us baby boomers alone to our patented brand of self-indulgence.  Then, too, I came across the photo below of what MacGyver looks like today; not even Patti and Selma would swoon over him any more.
