We as a society have begun to think of what our elders are capable of as merely pinochle and dancing and bingo — and that’s such a waste of humanity. It really is. I mean, that’s sadder in my opinion than cases of neglect that you see in facilities. To see someone who is, or was a doctorate — had a doctorate — or was a high-level professional or was just good at what they did, could have been a cabinet maker, and then to see them lose that edge, to see them stop and become what I call elder zombies. It’s very sad, very sad.

Sarah Palin to $upport Santa? & Underprivileged Children?? & New Yorkers?!?

Scanning Craigslist for Holiday Work, I happened upon an ad seeking Temporary Full-Time Employees.

$25 bucks an hour plus complementary meals & lodging,
"creating one of a kind toys for underprivileged children"

Wonder where the Kool-Aid Claus is? WorkForSanta.com reveals: Co-founded by The Sarah Palin Economic Initiative.

Lush, complimentary lodgings and full-time (albeit temporary) employment at nearly 3 1/2 x the minimum wage? For NEW YORKERS?

Not a snowball’s chance in a piping hot percolator. 

*sigh* …. *updates letter to Santa*

& they’re also on twitter.
