Revolution is for rebels--however old they are!

My email junk box used to receive porno ads for all sorts of peculiar sex. Now I get nothing but adverts for incontinence diapers & the Scooter store. Worse than the guy who invited me to play Bingo! Now I understand why seniors die before their time or drink themselves to death. There’s no dignity afforded aging. That’s why my heart sings when I see photos of seniors round the world kicking ass for social & political justice. They used to say ‘revolution is for the young.’ Screw that prejudice! Revolution is for those pissed off enough to keep marching! And if photojournalism & the antiwar movement are any judge, seniors are taking the lead--right behind the women!
