Nice little bit of retroactive justification over at the boston globe editorial page—gen X “slackers” were actually keenly preparing for the economic contraction, “busy working on a more workable model … creating something worthwhile – a sustainable neighborhood, a tech future, a life we can manage.”  Vindication is the sweetest nectar.  And even through the hubris (granted, lip service given to “indulgences” and “frivolity”) the premise still stands.

So maybe the slackers had it right after all
