Ted Rall for December 11, 1996
Irony runs amok at the Gen-X round table. Man 1: The biggest problem for our generation is a lack of good jobs. Woman: No, it's being stuck with huge student loans. Man 2: If generation-xers had better access to the media, we wouldn't be marginalized! Man 3: Who cares? We just need the government to leave us alone! Woman 2: No wonder people our age get treated like stale leftovers- we can't agree on anything! Man 4: Wait! Aren't you forgetting something? There's no such thing as gen-x! All labels are meaningless! Woman 3: Whew- that was a close call! Man 5: No doubt... it's never easy when your identity is not having one.
