Perry Block thinks there should be more respect for baby boomers in stores.

Do you remember the teams you rooted for as a kid? Perry Block does, and today can’t believe his good fortune: what once was the worst team in baseball has been leading the parade. But now he has to deal with it. What Perry wonders is, Do I Deserve The Phillies?
All of us baby boomers have been around long enough that there probably are a few “do-overs” we’d like to … well, to do over. Writer Perry Block has found a way to think about it that justifies every do-ever you do over. He calls it, Taking a Mulligan at Life.
