25 SEP 10

It used to be called, "The Generation Gap". . .

In a local restaurant. . .
chatting with the twenty-something waiter
after the meal (and waiting for my wife
to return from the ladies room before departing.)
We were talking Yankee baseball. . .
I happened to mention the extrordinary discovery of a film
that captured the entire last game of the 1960 World Series.
When I spoke of this, he became very excited. . .
he asked me where it had come from
and I answered, "From Bing Crosby's basement.
He was a huge Pirates fan."
The young waiter looked at me, clearly puzzled, then asked,
"Who's that?"

Ah, Youth. . . (Sigh)
