Dear Lois, “I read your blog yesterday. It made me think of when we all started working. Everyone thought young woman couldn’t be successful in an old boys network. So we took advantage of their underestimating us. Nothing has really changed. Just a different perspective.”
Those words came from my girlfriend Laurie in an email last night. She wanted to remind me that every age has its own set of problems. I appreciated her words. I received about seven other email comments from friends, all very supportive.
Then my friend Steve told me about a commentary Bill Maher presented on the aging of America last Friday on his weekly HBO show, Real Time With Bill Maher. Very appropriate. Be sure to watch it. Gives us all, food for thought. It will also explain the headline.
