Live long and prosper
IWAS heartened to read Agromenes’s article ‘Age is just a state of mind’ (February 8). At the age of nearly 83, I live an active life and consider it insulting and unjust for there to be discrimination due to longevity. I live in South Africa and frequently travel to Europe, but it seems impossible to obtain travel insurance when one is over 80.
A few years ago, I read some statistics on life expectancy—the document had the title ‘The entire population broken down by age and sex’. Well, I’m far from broken down, but I’m not too sure about the sex. Roger Summers, Western Cape, South Africa
