Who is “old”? What is “old”? What is “age”? Is chronological age important?
We know children who are “old for their age”. How about a person afflicted with “second childhood”? Some people just “never age”.
I am often told “you look so much younger” when told my chronological age. Some are off by up to thirty years. I am a few weeks from the age of sixty-eight. There are days I feel like I am forty. There are days I feel like I am eighty. Mentally I tell people I took too many hits to my head when I was in the military. Starting out I had a rather high I.Q., lost a lot of it when I was dying of Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C and being poisoned by liver failure. Then I recovered a lot of it back once the HepC was knocked down and my liver rebuilt.
My shrink often says she wishes her younger clients thought as “young” as I do. My young is often described as similar to Gen Z. To me I think more like a young Finn. My mother is ninety and travels all over the country, on her own.
Is Biden old? Is Pelosi old? Is SFB old? Did Reagan act old? Are the Dem leaders old? Are the greedy old perverts leadership old?
The problem is not “age”. The problem in politics is fighting the last election. Are the Dems not able to think “young”? Do the repubs think “young”?
I do think the Dems are not allowing enough input from the young in? Young to me means forty and younger. Yes. Leadership should be moved beyond one person, essentially for life. Movement, in politics as in shoulder joints, is necessary to prevent freezing in place.
Has Pelosi stayed too long. I tend to think so. Not due to age issues. I think because the Dems are not allowing younger leaders to bring in new ideas and people.
A lot of questions – on purpose.

Toy store chain Toys R Us is planning to sell or close all 800 of its U.S. stores, affecting as many as 33,000 jobs as the company winds down its operations after six decades, according to a source familiar with the matter.
Well I suppose all those coal jobs will make up for the toy jobs loss
Or not ….

Here’s your live thread for Pennsylvania congressional election. Will blue collar whites leave Trump for the Democrat?
Interesting timing. Russia Republicans give Putin a pass on the same day Britain says he poisoned them.
Donald J. Trump (Twitter):
“THE HOUSE INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE HAS, AFTER A 14 MONTH LONG IN-DEPTH INVESTIGATION, FOUND NO EVIDENCE OF COLLUSION OR COORDINATION BETWEEN THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN AND RUSSIA TO INFLUENCE THE 2016 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION.”
In-depth? Witnesses assert phony privileges, bank records never subpoenaed, Manafort/Gates not questioned. Kangaroos could do better.
