It could just be demographics.
If you\'re about 30, that means your parents are baby-boomers.
The culture of boomers is tinged by the Vietnam War, violence and guns in general.
There is also a regional bent. In Wisconsin you can actually get time off from your job to hunt deer or go to a Packer game. We have a truck plant in Janesville that actually shut down early so that its workers could drive to Green Bay in time for the game.
The bright spot in this is that the boomers were the last of the 'real bikers.'
We probably fathered most of you, anyway.
