Concerning Zeit Guy and zeitguy.com:
Zeit Guy is an early boomer, so nicknamed by some younger friends. The name, of course, is a pun on the German word zeitgeist or spirit of the times. These friends tell me (from the stories I’ve told them) that they see me as having ridden on the forward edge of many of the cultural and political waves that have been arising and rippling since the 60’s.
No one can say and pass the laugh test that they embody the zeitgeist of their generation. And I’m usually committed to meeting this minimal standard. So with tongue touching cheek, I adopted Zeit Guy as a nom de blog. Whether the blog contains something “spirited,” is for you, the reader, to say.
