Definitely a terrorist!

In my political work with different movements I have often been struck that young, hip looking people would rant & rave right wing insults at me & elderly men or women would give me an earful of outrage at the war or social security or injustice. I see now (especially as an outraged senior) it's a prejudice that being senior means being reactionary. It's also true that the generation of the 60s who built the Civil Rights, women's, gay rights, & antiwar movements are now seniors & practiced in the art of rebellion against injustice.
