Does "Old age is sad." make sense? Or does one have to say "Being old is sad."?
(1) That's great. As the Spanish put it so beautifully, we
older persons are in our "third age." So it's nice that we
are given some privileges.
(2) On a more serious note:
This is a language website, so I have to stay away from politics.
But maybe I shall be allowed to report that some Americans feel that
your beautiful country is a bit TOO generous to its residents.
(4) I hear that my city will raise the "senior citizen" rate in about two
