Greedy Grannies

Mostly favorable response to my Operation Please Granny column because most people are now seeing it on Townhall. When it makes it out to the hinterland, the hate mail will begin to pour in from the oldsters. Meanwhile, how’s this for principle?

E-mail:

“When my mother reached the age of entitlement to the “senior discount,” she consistently refused it. Tradesperson were (1) suspicious, (2) disbelieving and often (3) personally affronted. I always enjoyed the spectacle. Now, I’m doing the same thing. Too, if I can’t foot the drug bill, I plan to skip the medicine. At least, that will let me “die proud,” as we say in the South.”
