Silent Generation Dad Silent No More

More unintentional humor from the Old Country. The Telegraph ran a wonderful rant by a Silent Generation father against his three supposedly wastrel Baby Boom children. I found it a pleasure to read, and apparently, so did others. Nick Crews, a normally taciturn retired submarine captain living in Plymouth, was a bit sorry it went public, but bemused by all the attention he has been getting. He obviously touched a nerve.

The Crew email was made public by his youngest child, who found it useful and non-threatening. The result is still more publicity.

And further analysis and comment. Captain Crews says, "After the initial agonising self-doubts, I felt a sense of relief when I pressed the send button." So, one suspects, did many people his age (67) who read the stories!
