Many of us children of the 60's are now in our 60's. We are still consumers, we still listen to music, still can work along side younger people, and the last holdouts have warmed up to computers, even dating online. But, many of us have been laid off or fired because we are paid too much, or our health care is perceived to be too expensive. This happened to me, yet I still have the same bills as younger people. I have two daughters, one who is seventeen years old. She really wants to attend Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, where the tuition alone is up to sixty-two thousand dollars! I cannot pay for that, plus health care. What do I do? Vote, that is what, and for the first time in my life, I am advocating voting the incumbents out of office. Freshman Congress members will not know what they are doing, but then, neither do the members of the current Congress. Maybe what we need is an "old person march on Washington!" I am floating the idea with some of my old, radical buddies.....stay tuned!
