I used to wonder how the names of generational groups were assigned. I think I have discovered at least one way that these groups might have been labeled. I’m a Baby Boomer – those children born soon after the close of the Second World War. We are now seniors among those generation categories. The ones who followed have other sources for their nomenclature, with some bearing only a letter – known as Gen X or Z or Millennials. There are many circumstances that may have contributed to these titles. One such circumstance might well be found in the entertainment industry that have provided these young people with gadgets that we Boomers never had.
