Commentator Andrei Codrescu says the baby boom generation is about to retire and wants to do crazy things — with or without any money. He says he can understand this, because it's been his strategy all along. The mistake, he says, is that most retirement fantasies involve moving and expensive locations. He suggests using your "gray matter" to write and think and retirement will be bliss.
