Science and sci-fi geeks come out of the government closet!
Yep - He is a BB. I just missed it by a few years (1967)
The United States Census Bureau considers a baby boomer to be someone born during the demographic birth boom between 1946 and 1964. The Census Bureau is not involved in defining cultural generations.
THIS IS WILD!
Amanda's link http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baby_Boomer indicates 1946 & 1964
http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/baby_boomer says A person born in the postwar years (generally considered as the decade between 1945 and 1955), when there was an increase in the birth rate following the return of servicemen at the end of World War II.
Princeton's on line dictionary http://wordnetweb.princeton.edu/perl/webwn?s=baby+boomer says one born in the 50s
and another glossary http://www.sistema.com/utility/glossary/?rid=23579&letter=B says "A citizen of the good old U. S. of A. born between the years 1946 and 1960"
and my hard copy Webster's says "a person born in the US during the great increase in birthrate in the years following World War II"
