Thank you for your comments, I did generalize and I did not mean to offend. I was only commenting on what I have observed on the news, then broad-stroked a comment.Excuse me I am 65 and still teach a college course in foreign affairs. It takes many years to acquire an appreciation for various cultures and the inner workings of multiple societies. Basic facts can be acquired in a year or two but actual understanding over a prolonged period is worth cash in the bank to many companies. That is why it is not unusual to see some silver hairs in very prestigious board rooms.
Stereotyping elderly people as " bumbling" "naive to current affairs" "bamboozled most of the time" etc speaks to a percentage and by no means not even the majority. Most of us are managing our own affairs well and have the raising and providing for a family behind us. Many are off looking for warmth in the winter, wondering if we should ditch the cottage and so on.
I and others , I am sure, would like you to re-think those comments.You can only hope you will be as well positioned after going through most of your life and the slings and arrows that may befall you.
I wish you well none the less. Just felt you needed to hear that.
I stand corrected and thank you for being respectful.
