Beki Brindle on Gen Jones :
Beki passionately identifies as part of Gen Jones, and has publicly brought up Gen Jones many times. In a discussion about John Lennon’s death, Beki wrote here in December 2020: “I remember where I was..  40 years ago .. it was Gen Jones’/X’s JFK, I was told the next day… I felt my soul crushed .. it felt like the world would never return to normal. It didn’t…” Beki has brought up Gen Jones in the context of various issues in the news, like here in February 2023, when she expressed her frustration at the prospect of Gen Jones not getting its fair share of retirement funds: “ Hey #SocialSecurity . thanks for screwing over the happily married 4 many years #generationjones people. We can’t collect 1/2 spouse’s SS while ours matures as the #boomers did! I guess it’s just not there for us!  Pay in & work ’til death.  #retirement”
