Birthday Blues

I have a birthday coming up in a couple months, and even though I don't consider it a big deal, I can't escape the fact I'm getting older.

It's a little tougher these days. We have a lot of young people running around the office, and that's great. It adds vitality and new ideas to the operation. On the other hand, it does make me feel ancient, on occasion.

Here's something that lifted my spirits. Look at the guys who moderated this year's presidential debates. Tom Brokaw is 68. Bob Schieffer is 71, and Jim Lehrer is 74.

Experience is a good thing.

I'm clearing my calendar now so I'll be avaialble to moderate a debate in 2028.
