The inspiration for the name of the site is explained in one of my inaugural posts, No Country Club for Old Men. I’m part of what’s been called the Silent Generation, which was born during the Depression (and may well die off during another one) and came of age in the 1950s, a time not so different from the Bush years that we’ve all just lived through. But Unsilent Generation is not meant for any particular generation: It’s for everyone who is old or plans on some day becoming old.
Readers are encouraged to comment on the posts, and are welcome to send ideas, links, and responses to firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll use your stuff if I think it’s any good, or write back to you if I feel like it after I’ve had my nap.
