Ending with a boom

October 17, 2008

We baby boomers always knew we’d make a difference in the end:

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Beyond the convention center filled with glistening hearses, beyond the rows of perfectly arranged caskets and bottles of embalming fluid, funeral directors await perhaps their greatest windfall ever: The death of the baby boom generation.

For thousands of professionals gathered here at the National Funeral Directors Association convention, the current economic slump does nothing to dampen longer-term hopes pinned to the projected rise of the U.S. death rate as the cohort born between 1946 and 1964 passes away.

Well, they always said we like a pig in the python’s belly. The digestion process nearly over.
