Thirty Five Years of Yuppies
In the event it's slipped everyone's attention, we just passed an important milestone. Yup, it's been 35 years since Ronald Reagan was first inaugurated President. Can you believe the first yuppies (including the First Yuppie, born in 1961) are eligible to join AARP this year? We're on the third generation of Yuppies, GenX, GenY (aka Millennials) and now Gen Z. Hard to believe that 35 years ago there were no McMansions, no SUVs, no epidemic of Homelessness, and we were still fighting the Cold War with the Evil Empire. Stay tuned for Gen Z hitting the streets of Arlington as summer interns this Summer. Stay warm in the meantime.
