Response to Lotusflower70 (Original post)

16. In one sense, I understand their feelings

Not in relation to race or sexual preference or any of the other things they complain about.

What I'm referring to is the experience of growing old and feeling increasingly like a stranger because of social changes, changes in music, clothing styles, etc. It's not even that I disapprove of any of it. It's just that the changes make me feel more like an outsider every day.

(On the other hand, I understand that it's the way it always has been and always will be, and it doesn't influence how I vote. I'm as leftie as ever.)
