"Don’t know about the rest of you 50+ folks, but it’s time for me to burn my AARP card. Have to start by saying that I like and respect many people who work for and serve as volunteers for AARP. An article by Laura Meckler in today’s Wall Street Journal reports that 'AARP, the powerful lobbying group for older Americans, is dropping its longstanding opposition to cutting Social Security benefits.'" [editor's note: Funny, the announcement has the opposite effect on me; I'm considering signing up after throwing the cards away for almost a dozen years now (altho American Seniors still looks better)! - SAT] (06/17/11)
