The world's most cantankerous body

An interesting article about age and the US Senate. Did you know the average age of the incoming Senate is 62? Yeah, 62!

You're have a problem with age discrimination it seems.

62 is definately not old. At 21 judgement hasn't even matured yet.

I can only shake my head in bewildered amazement at an accusation of age discrimination. As if I have the power to discriminate against the US Senate in the first place.

As if this is about whether or not you have any power over the U.S. Senate - silly statement.

It's about the age factor. Unfortunately, youth seem to think one has to be under 50 to be coherent, have vision, have the energy, etc.

This is 2006 - today's 60 is yesterday's 40.

It's interesting how you can read so much of my beliefs into one and a half sentences. I'm not even sure what you're trying to say, actually, other than the preposterous blanket assertion that I are have (sic; see your original post) a problem with age discrimination.

Look at your title and the fact that 62 seems important enough to write about.

Dead give away.

You're right. I think 62 year olds should be either locked up in concentration camps or burned at the stake.

You happy?
