STEVE INSKEEP, host:
Mr. Zoellick's boss has a birthday today. President George W. Bush, who has called himself an old president, getting older by the minute, turns 60.
LYNN NEARY, host:
But as he said in his State of the Union speech, he's in good company.
President GEORGE W. BUSH: This year, the first of about 78 million baby boomers turn 60, including two of my dad's favorite people: me and President Clinton.
(Soundbite of laughter)
NEARY: Here are some other boomers turning 60 this year: Dolly Parton, Donald Trump, Diane Keaton, Suzanne Somers, Reggie Jackson, Cher and Jimmy Buffett.
(Soundbite of "Boy Wonder, I Love You")
Unidentified Group: (singing) Boy Wonder, I love you.
INSKEEP: And today, Burt Ward, also known as Robin, the Boy Wonder from the TV show Batman, is definitely no longer a boy.
(Soundbite of Batman theme)
Unidentified Group: (singing) Na, na, na, na, na, na, Batman!
INSKEEP: He also turns 60.
And so does Rocky, Sylvester Stallone.

NEARY: He may not be Rocky, but Mr. Bush is known for going on two-hour mountain bike rides that exhaust his Secret Service detail. He recently said of hitting 60: It's all in your mind. It's not that old; it really isn't.
