63. Many people are saying the same thing, as empathy is now a relic of the past.
I've been known to say it, also, even though I know it means I will die a suffering death.

So, I would say you are doing quite well with getting to know your elbow.


Sadly enough.

I used to think it was important for a democracy to have a strong middleclass.

Now that I've seen what people do with that comfort level, and just become fat and happy and disdainful of others, I really don't care that it's collapsing. Maybe that will restore some compassion.

There ARE muddleclass people who still have heart who will be heart, and I am sorry about that. BUT, I'm also sorry about those of us with nothing who will go first. I'm a devout coward, and I'm not looking forward to more suffering.

I've had enough of that, thankyouverymuch.
