Boomsday - Christopher Buckley This is a novel about the conflicting interests of the W-Gen's (whatever generation) versus the baby boomers. It describes the obvious simple solution to the looming Social Security financial crisis. The book is intended to be funny, and I'll admit I was grinning all the way through it. But I wonder, should I be laughing about America accepting awful solutions by glossing over their actual reality? Is there a serious underlying message to this story?
