    maybe we should take these old people’s licenses away

    • Rocky4

      I’m sure that would be an appropriate move in some cases.

      Maybe we should be redesigning our communities and investing in a transportation system in which not having a car isn’t tantamount to a loss of “pride, mobility, and freedom”. (Please forgive the double negative!) My condolences to his family. My hopes for a wiser future.

    Authorities say speed was among the factors in the accident.

    Choosing to drive too fast is never an “accident”.

  • When anyone over 85 hits a pole at “high speeds” doesn’t one have to wonder?

    Recent news that you had 6 months to look forward to a painful, lingering, expensive death with stomach cancer?

    And — are life insurance claims invalid if a man intentionally takes his own life?

    I remember well an elderly man, a very nice man, who at 82 or so put on his best suit and shot himself because the doctor told him he had a virus.
