Washington: Town of Well-Kept Lawns

Just Who Are You Calling Old? - "Icould barely contain my shock when I read the offhand comment that George Artz, a longtime Democratic operative and former press secretary to Mayor Edward I. Koch, recently made to The Washington Post: He said that Rep. Nita Lowey (D-N.Y.) would make a great replacement for Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton because Lowey 'is in her 70s, and her health is so-so, so she would be the perfect interim pick to serve out the term.'

I've got news for Artz: In a town of power geezers, the 71-year old Lowey is a spring chicken. Sure, we have a 47-year-old president-elect. But it doesn't hurt to be well past the standard retirement age when you're traversing the halls of the Capitol."

Thanks to Beth Foxwell for the link.
