HOPE FOR THE FUTURE [PERSONAL]

The down side of living in a retirement home [or CCRC, as we like to say] is that everyone is old.  The up side is that everyone is old [and still alive.]  Yesterday, while Susie and I were doing our bit on the communal 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle in the lobby of our building, a sprightly, pulled together lady walked up and introduced herself as a long time resident of the building.  She allowed as how she is ninety-nine!  I began to reevaluate my chances of living to see a turn to the left in American politics.

My mother is 100 and while she is not sprightly nor can she walk, she reads serious books: this year she's read War and Peace, Anna Karenina and Madame Bovary. She's now on the Sentimental Education. She hadn't read any of those novels previously.

She's not likely to support you in your quest for a leftward turn in American politics, although she did vote for Hillary.
