A story today about a senior center in the Bronx where retired people have a weekly Friday-night talent show is fascinating, if you can manage to ignore the whiff of patronization. Quotes like this one, for example: "People say they’re too old to learn, but you learn until you die. And then you learn to die" are less poignant when you realize the speaker is only 66 years old. That's not very old! [NYT]
