Say, what?

A CYNICAL LOOK AT THE DAILY GRIND

SNORT ME UP!


I was going to write about Rolling "Stoner" guitarist Keith Richards who joked about snorting his father's ashes mixed with cocaine.

Instead, I got a little ticked off when I heard a couple of radio talk-show hosts bashing old people this morning.

They were so disrespectful that I secretly wished these two guys would live to be a sickly 100-plus in a nursing home that employs insolent aides.

Then, I read about a study that found older people don't want to exercise in front of a bunch of young hard bodies wearing Spandex.

Can you blame them?


Attitudes toward the elderly in this country are so flagrantly disgraceful that receiving an AARP invitation can send almost anyone into seclusion.

It's time for baby boomers to change the tide and proudly strut their stuff on the boardwalk in front of the hard bodies.

And remember, as Richards knows, sometimes Spandex is your friend.

Keith Richards showed the ultimate disrespect to his elders (his Dad) if, in fact, he really did mix Pop's ashes with a line of cocaine as he reported to that British magazine earlier this week . He seems to be denying those claims now ...(probably in a rare sober moment, even he thought it was outrageously distasteful)...as far as Spandex being Richards' friend..with friends like that, who needs enemies?

Say Proof, I beg to differ with you, that old adage stands corrected these days, it now reads "with friends like that, who needs friends?
