Susan Greenberg on Gen Jones:
Susan has resisted classification as a Baby Boomer, and wrote in March 2022 in response to an article about Gen Jones: “I salute this distinction, and happily join ‘Generation Jones’.” When someone the following year referred to a “tail end boomer,” Susan immediately corrected her in February 2023: “The later period is known as ‘Generation Jones.’”
