Burns doesn't have to be 'hip'

September 27, 2009

I really get tired of the younger generation, filmmakers in this case, talking about how stuff isn't hip or to their liking. Did they ever stop to consider that they are not the largest population demographic in the U.S.? Or that a lot of people in my age group, over 50, like things such as Ken Burns' productions ("That Burns Backlash," Sept. 20)?

I say to those who don't like Ken Burns' "The National Parks," nobody is forcing you to watch the program. Your parents aren't going to drag you kicking and screaming to watch the series, mainly because you're too busy playing video games.

Consider that Ken Burns has quite a reputation, and young newbie filmmakers do not at the moment.
