So I Hear You Learned About My Generation From a Movie?

Seriously. I grew up in Miami in the 80s when, as a city a tenth the size of Chicago, we had 622 murders, and other than making movies about it and a couple magazine covers, no one largely cared. Chicago, again, 10x the size of Miami has a little over 720 murders and people are acting like it’s friggin’ Iraq during the surge.

See those spikes? That was GenX’s childhood and early twenties.
