I flinched in embarrassment when I read Harold D. McFeely's letter ("Seniors Shorted," March 23), saying we elders should get a bigger share of the stimulus.
What's to whine about? I think we've got it pretty good with Medicare, a model health-care program that everyone should enjoy, and it never crossed my mind to fret about the small after-tax supplement I pay for my medications. What's more, we get a Social Security check every month, we ride the buses free, we get discounts on movies and plays, we get a property tax rebate if we qualify and we have senior centers all over the country that offer recreation, company and a meal five days a week.
We've made a bit of a mess of things -- the environment, the economy and a couple of wars we didn't need. How about we think of the next generation and try to do something right for a change?
