It will certainly be interesting

Regardless of your political leaning - even if you don't have one - this is going to be an entertaining fall.

And a confirmation of just how old I am. For the first time there will be a president or vice-president that is younger than me. 

I remember when I first started seeing pro athletes younger than me. That wasn't so bad because there were still a LOT of them older than me, which naturally meant that if I applied myself a bit I could be playing along with them. 

But before I knew it, it became hard to find a pro athlete older than me. And now, outside of some niche sports and that golf tour for old people, there are none.

And now there will be someone running this country who is younger than me. And that's not all - there will be someone who is not an old white guy. For sure, there will still be an old white guy as part of the team, but at least we are guaranteed to have a bit of variety. Finally. 

This has been a long time coming. Hopefully it will lead to a lot more variety and choices in the future.

Like maybe some team hiring a 50+ retired ball player.

That's it - move along...

Just go to the supermarket at 10am or the SF Symphony. You'll be the youngest person by 20 years.

But don't let the cop's grandchild stop you for a ticket ~ he shouldn't be wearing that uniform! Your new car is a beauty and driving with a clutch is terrific because you really can control the car better, don't you think? Sorry, notthat.
