Why do the elderly...

get so riled up about politics? I had a conversation with a 70 year old man. He went on and on about the democratic presidential candidates and their issues. It's so difficult for me to write about politics. I would nopt be able to tell you what he was talking about exactly. I have never been interested in politics like that. How does some one get into it like this? Like boys getting into a favorite sports team, maybe? These issues on taxes, candidate's family history and corporations as big campaign donars, that he is so whole heartedly explaining to me is going in one ear and out another. Another example of a lost culture between generations; politics.
