THE DEATH OF COOL: An open letter to Generation X

THE DEATH OF COOL: An open letter to Generation X - Greg Ippolito In which Greg posits that sarcasm and aloofness are real problems for the post-babyboomer generation, and makes a plea to us all to drop it and be more authentic and sincere.

I am a member of this generation, and I am usually revoltingly sincere, although not a fan of the concept of authenticity. When people in my life are too sarcastic or aloof, I usually tell them as much. I can vouch for the effectiveness of that approach. Greg will have to let us know what sort of results he gets from the open letter.
