This thread is a sad commentary on where society has come when terms like "elder" and "elderly" -- once terms of social respect in a society that used to respect age, experience and wisdom -- are now considered offensive and pejorative...

I'm retired and I'm pretty proud of the respect I get for how I look in skinny jeans, thanks to a lot of time in the gym doing squats and lifting weights. If I were sitting on a porch giving advice to young wippersnappers 30 years my junior I guess I'd want respect for my wisdom and experience.

Sixty really is, after all, the new 40.

P.S. I just got back from 3 weeks in Egypt and Jordan and I'm pretty cranky from the jet lag.
