>>"Senior Citizen" was coined to have some positive implications, as opposed to "old people" "elderly" "aged" and the like, with only negative implications.<<

Hi, Chris
I don't agree with your phrase "only negative implications".
"old people" "elderly" "aged" are simply truthful terms.
But youth worshippers may try to discern negative implications.

One trouble with "Senior Citizen" is that in the U.S, there are many old folks (hey, this is a good one!) who are not citizens, as they are aliens.
