Growing Up With Patti Davis

January 13, 2002

Thank you to Patti Davis for her eloquent and touching reflections on the occasion of her 49th birthday ("A Birthday Wish," Dec. 9). It was a truly enriching experience to read something that resonated so deeply.

How nice to learn that self-involved baby boomers such as Patti Davis think they have finally grown up at 50. Their parents grew up at 20, fought a war, developed a country, and some of them evidently spoiled a generation that is able to walk along a beach, study their navels and grope through life.

I don't know Patti Davis, and I have not been a fan of her dad's work on the silver screen or in Washington. But on Dec. 9, three days before my own getting-nearer-to-50th birthday, she gave me a very special and personal birthday present in the form of her lovely essay. I'll tell you what Patti: to celebrate both of our birthdays, I'm heading out to Blockbuster to rent one of your dad's movies. Now that I'm older and wiser (thanks to your charming and meaningful insights), I'll bet my taste in movies has mellowed a bit. Happy birthday, Patti.
