Who are you call­ing ‘el­derly?’

Baltimore Sun - - FROM PAGE ONE - Stas Chrzanowski, Can­ton

In the ar­ti­cle “Clin­ton’s health goes main­stream” (Sept. 12), GOPs­trate­gist Katie Packard, who claims to sup­port no can­di­date (which makes her a heck of a GOP strate­gist) makes the state­ment: “Both can­di­dates are el­derly” as Don­ald Trump is 70 and Hil­lary Clin­ton is 68.

I am 72 years old. I try and keep as fit as I can, walk­ing sev­eral miles a day, go­ing to the gym and do­ing other crazy things an el­derly per­son should not be do­ing. Now that I am con­sid­ered el­derly, I will have to cur­tail my ac­tiv­i­ties to things like just watch­ing TV and hir­ing a dog walker, can­cel­ing my gym mem­ber­ship and def­i­nitely no more danc­ing the Hokey Pokey.

I also feel more tired now that I’m el­derly. Wow, all this typ­ing has worn me out. Think I’ll go take a nap!
