My trusty old Toyota Camry overheated the other day. I had the car towed to my mechanic and called Enterprise Car Rental to pick me up. The driver of the pick-up van was pretty friendly so we started to talk. He’s 71 years old and a retired mortician. He works full time for Enterprise. I asked him what it was like working with mostly twenty year olds. He wisely told me that everyone got along pretty well probably due to...

My son quipped "why dad...you don't even know how to use all of the functions on the tv remote"! I’m the oldest of the Baby Boomers and my son is a Gen M or the Media Generation. He’s already started his own online advertising a...
