"Well, not everyone, it seems. I was watching some excerpts on the news tonight of Barbara Walters interviewing President Obama, and it occurred to me that she's in her 80s. Heck, she looks better than most people in their 60s, still has enough energy to do what she does, and has no plans to retire anytime soon, apparently." - andrew

Yeah, Barbara Walters didn't lift sides of beef and sling them around or stack boxes at Kraft Foods, or carry 80+ lb deep heavy supers of honey, or bend and lift squirming wiggly German Shepherds or Golden Retrievers up on exam tables, or unload truckloads of feed and bedding.

So I can sort of see why she's not a mess. She didn't do heavy physical work for a living.
