Thirty Five Years of Yuppies



Hello,


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.


Cindy

Homeless veterans of the many Third World conflicts the U.S. has fought since 1981 are just now receiving the attention they've deserved.

Was only $4 per gallon home heating oil that jump started on-site solar.

Keep burning fossil fuel in increasingly-larger upscale homes and fossil fuel-powered vehicles.

Thanks to our Dominion-friendly Arlington Democrats we have a 'community energy plan' that's based on burning more fossil fuel to power and heat the big new energy in-efficient buildings the Democrat-controlled County Board approves at every meeting.

Why is the County Board still granting bonus density to developers for new LEED Silver buildings?
