Thomas Levenson on Gen Jones:
Thomas is a member of Generation Jones, and has publicly discussed it multiple times. For example, in a discussion about how Boomers, unlike Jonesers, often had the opportunity for free college, Thomas noted in August 2022: “Yes, UCB was not free when I, a Gen. Jones person, apparently, graduated from Berkeley High School (go Yellow Jackets!).”
