148 Bonnie Meadow Road. Intersection between prewar and postwar generations.
Prewar: Vaudeville. Depression-era frugality. Guarded sense of life's insecurity; the dark humor of adversity.
Postwar: Television. Consumerism. The technocratic optimism of the New Frontier.
Intersection: child-rearing. The old generation grew up with a rap inna mouth. The new one consults Doctor Spock.
