As a deadline journalist focused on the San Francisco beat, my gaze has seen a once laconic landscape turn into a profit-driven Westernized juggernaut that virtually no one can afford to step into. In the recent economic maelstrom, the healthcare sector has thrived with Boomers paying most of the bill. While many prospered in an inflationary bubble during the 1990s, a numbing number of Boomers are now hobbling toward the pearly portal with multiple chronic conditions and depleted resources from a reversal of fortune due to the fleecing of the economy by corrupt corporations, industry-backed oil wars, Wall Street greed, and overt government deceptions. I covered the Barbary Coast scene as a maverick reporter and national feature writer for United Press International during the stoned seventies and zippy eighties and currently write about a range of issues that impact the boomer experience. Check out my Boomertrip Lists of topics and activities that enhance or influence senior activities and healthy aging goals. Tune in, turn on and sound off to help compile and share resources needed by an eclectic generation that created ‘counterculture’ values and is flashing the peace sign as the sun slowly rises on a burgeoning brave new world paradigm of artificial intelligence, smart drones, robotic workers, twisted news, and social media influences.
