    Simply a matter of fact. The World War II generation is not in
    power. Neither Clinton nor Gore. Clinton is younger than you,
    Joe. There may still be a couple of WW II-age people on the
    Supreme Court, but a minority. Also a few Congressional Committee
    heads, very few. Likewise, industry and the banks and
    transportation and the army are all run by post-WW II people.
    Even Colin Powell, now retired, started in Korea, a whole
    different thing than WWII.
