Re: Re: Just a test


Bonnie, sorry - I didn't really mean to slam AARP and generalize about their
membership.  What I meant to say is that many people I know who have always
cared about the down-trodden, the environment, and the bigger picture in
general all through their youth have somehow switched and are so consumed
about their own bottom line.  This seems to have happened just as they
crossed over the 50 yard line - which coincides with those never-ending
requests that come in the mail insisting that you join AARP.
