Read Bill Flanagan’s humorous piece on turning fifty-nine: http://nyr.kr/MResYl
“What really pisses me off about fifty-six-year-olds trying to be cool is that now we’re into the fifty-year anniversaries of everything and I know for a fact that most of these fifty-six-year-olds who act like they remember when J.F.K. got shot are just faking. They might recall playing with their Silly Putty but no way do they remember watching the Beatles on ‘Ed Sullivan.’”
