Don, your quotes all week have been terrific; thanks very much.

About today's, I've always felt there HAD to be some advantage to growing old, so I now feel free to say and do pretty much what I want--within the bounds of good taste, though. I wouldn't hurt anyone's feelings with a thoughtless remark or act unkindly--not deliberately, anyway! :>)

Dan, if you keep going the way you have been, you may be elected "permanent quoter of the GW/Party"!
Love the Curt Vonnegut quote but the other old pharts are right on, also - too bad that in our society they are Senior Citizen - when in other places they are called "Elders" and it's a title of honor.
