Discrimination – Alive and Well

One of the interesting  nuances of this year’s presidential campaign is the blatant age discrimination being leveled against John McCain.  The fact that Mr. McCain is 70+ years of age has become the wellspring of comedic material for the late-night talk show circuit, the editorial cartoonist’s brush and the politcal talking heads of the news networks.  Being over 70 has somehow become a liability, whereas in other cultures those of advanced years are honored and respected.

Whatever the merits or failings of John McCain, age should be a factor just as much as race is a factor: neither should be a factor at all.

Hi there,

I looked over your blog and it looks really good. Do you ever do link exchanges on your blog roll? If you do, I’d like to exchange links with you.

Let me know if you’re interested.
