We’re all familiar with the debate over the birth years of our generation. Tomorrow, I will begin working on a long-form piece that will attempt to explain why it begins in 1961 and ends in 1981. I will argue that the most GenX of the GenXers are those born between 1961 and 1964, and 1979 and 1981. Keep an open mind. I think after you read this piece you will agree.
