WBKO, you reported yesterday that a 61 year old elderly woman was killed. How is 61 Elderly? My grandfather is 72 and still is as active as he was when he was 32, I know people who still work 30 hours a week that are over 80. WBKO, get with the times, its not 1965 anymore and people don't die as young as they use too. Isn't Gene Birk over 60? So is he elderly even though he has a 3 year old? I guess all the ignorant little young marks there that are under 25 like Hayley, Lacey, Midgett, Caitlin, and the sissy boy Zakk at Midday are too young to realize that 61 is NOT Elderly. I know the smart asses from there read this stuff because your ego is so high, so do a little research on what elderly really is today.

Put it into perspective and get over it. The definition of elderly is: past middle age and approaching the later stages of life. Someone who is 61 is past middle age and given that the average life expectancy for females is about 80, that would mean at 61 you are approaching the later stages of life. Just because someone is elderly does not mean they cannot function. It just means they are old.

Get real. There has to be a cut-off age. If they said 65 was elderly, you'd prolly complain that 64 can be elderly too, just b/c u know someone that fits that description. Quit complaining about useless crap and do something productive.

It is pretty petty to be on here dicussing a reporter calling someone elderly!! You should be more concerned about the fact Mrs. Williams was killed in this wreck and her family.

Gene Birk is at least 61 if not older, I guess he is ELDERLY so I guess his little girl will be having to wipe his butt pretty soon or let the nursing home do it for him. That statement was unreal, there are people in there 80s today that still run in marathons, mow there yards, workout. It is your genetics that defines if your elderly. There may be 60 year olds that look like they are 80. My mother in law looks younger than my wife and often is mistaken for my wifes daughter. Elderly today is at least somewhere over 80, 30 years ago elderly may have been 60, but times have changed.

61 is old. No point in denying the truth. Hell, another year and they can draw social security.

Well, I guess Madonna proved all of you wrong! Only women in Kentucky that smoke and hit the tanning bed are elderly. Exercise and Fillers can beat any fat redneck so maybe you should visit some Cougars that never age. Sorry "Amies an idiot" but it does count so stop being an idiot!

Best thing about getting old is that we all get there some day. It doesn't favor anyone. Walking 18 holes? Don't hurt yourself.....lol.

Madonna looks like a walking skeleton. She's 53 ish (not sure but something like that). She's had cosmetic surgery (by her own admission). Again Amie is an idiot and ur her idiot friend. The Madonna reference doesn't even make sense as she's not 61. In your old age your reading comprehension skills are lacking. Drink your ensure and watch 60 minutes.

They should have Hayley Harmon or Lacey Steele do a piece on taking care of the elderly and Gene Birk or Chris Allen could volunteer and she could demonstrate how to feed them, bathe them, and change there adult diaper.
