Political satirist and “Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me” panelist, P.J. O’Rourke, trains his eye on his own generation in his new book, “THE BABY BOOM: How It Got That Way…And It Wasn’t My Fault…And I’ll Never Do It Again.” O’Rourke writes, “Yes, we’re spoiled rotten. We’re self-absorbed. And it seems like we’ll never shut up. But the boomers made a better world for everyone else. You’re welcome.” P.J. O'Rourke’s books include “Don’t Vote,” “Parliament of Whores,” “Give War a Chance,” “Eat the Rich,” “The CEO of the Sofa,” “Peace Kills” and “On the Wealth of Nation.”
