Lucid and informative

My thanks to Mr. Kieran for providing that rare event in today’s media world, a lucid and informative article, and to Monday Magazine for publishing it. In our free-market world old folk like myself are increasingly exposed to more schemes and scams, most legal, some less so, to relieve them of their usually quite meagre savings. As Mr. Kieran points out, in the particular situation examined by him this seems designed primarily to get old folks off the roads (to make room for younger, more reckless drivers more profitable for the insurance companies?) and presumably into “homes,” also privatized and profitable, of course, where they are “out of harm’s way.” Or perhaps it is simply evidence of why I have an only 30 per cent statistical chance of passing the cognitive driver‘s test.

Paul Wagner,

Sooke
