Crabby three times from the same story
Yesterday I was crabby about a woman who looked really old to me being described by the police as "55 to 60 years old." I submitted photos of women who are actually 55 to 60 years old, arguing that you can be that age and still look pretty damn good.
One of my readers took exception to my post, saying "I was not in the least offended by her being categorized as 55 to 60. I WAS rather offended at you trotting out photos of 55-60 year old movie stars and celebrities as the benchmark for what that age range looks like. Not my reality."
You're right, I should not have suggested that movie stars and celebrities should be held up as role models or reality benchmarks. So I have gone back and amended my post. No more celebrities. Instead, U.S. Senators and governors. You may want to go back and see how good they look.
And Idaho, thanks for keeping me honest.
