60 years ago marked the end of what we called just "The War". The ensuing 20 years saw the birth of the boomers, who ever since have been passing through the demographics "like a bowling ball through a python". As they reach the nether regions of that serpent's digestive system, a cruel fate awaits them: The Walker. Encrusted and festooned with mementoes of other poor souls whose youth has been crushed out of them by the encounter, it weighs well nigh 100 pounds and is a hideous sight.

So, Strange Trippers, if you or anyone you love is even thinking about turning fifty anytime soon: Beware.
