* No one actually likes to admit they're old. The most they will cop to is that they're older. Or oldish.
* Freedom of the press belongs to the man who owns one.
* The Senior Moment has become the Google moment.
* I have been forgetting things for years-at least since I was in my thirties. I know this because I wrote something about it at the time. I have proof. Of course, I can't remember exactly where I wrote about it, or when, but I could probably hunt it up if I had to.
