Megyn Kelly represents exactly what the medium of television was made for: Young, blond, dewy. No surprise her primetime program on Fox "The Kelly File" trumped the competition.
Increasingly, the world outside television is also tilted toward youth, attractiveness, and freshness. I have seen my Baby Boomer clients, sometimes subtly, more often brutally, shut out of the mainstream. At first I thought they were causing themselves to be treated as obsolete. Then I recognized that the default was already etched into our society.
The challenge for the aging professional is to figure out how not to be excluded.
