Mr Black is a great performer and a good man.  I feel some sort of a sense of kinship with him, maybe because we're both old farts who just can't tolerate BS anymore.

Are you fucking kidding me. LOL

 

Lewis Black is very relatable to all of us old farts, I've loved his stuff for years.

 

Great rant and very well read.

I'm beginning to suspect that Mr. Black lacks piety.

It creeps up.  I used to be young and idealistic.  Now I'm here.  I'm 65.  I've got arthritis and the idealism is long gone.

It's not.  When I was a child, I collected toys.  Now, I collect doctors.  My daily pills are a pharmacy.  It could be worse.  At least, most of it is O.T.C.   and natural.

 

On a happy note, at least I've got doctors who have me on herbal stuff and vitamins, instead of the dangerous stuff.

I have prescription pills also.  Fear not.  Big Pharma is getting their piece of the action.  After all, these are the "golden years".  

 

Why do medical people wear masks?  Like any other highwayman.  

 

Why do medical people wear gloves?  Fingerprints.

Alright:  arthritis, enlarged prostate, some neurological stuff, and flat feet, various allergies, a polyp history, macular flap.....  My nerologist told me to drop 60 pounds.  

 

Next to this group, my health is enviable.

We are.  And still on the right side of the grass.  Life is good.  Best to enjoy it while we can.
