Despite my vigilant campaign for an aggressive euthanasia campaign, our society is still saddled with old people and homeless people and old homeless people.  And today, in a New York Times profile, Joe Paterno and his wife go about flaunting their non-euthanized oldness all over the place:

Joe and Sue Paterno have not seen a movie in a theater since “Titanic” and watch so little television that they were delighted to stumble upon a show this spring that they had not seen before.  “We discovered ‘M*A*S*H,’ ” Sue Paterno said, laughing. “I had heard about it, but I didn’t know what it was about.”

However, at the end of the article, Sue shares her disappointment at the loss of "M*A*S*H."

“They don’t show ‘M*A*S*H’ anymore,” Sue said. “But we haven’t seen ‘Cheers’ yet. Maybe we’ll find ‘Cheers’ soon.”

Y'know, when I see old people say, "Maybe we'll _____ ______ soon," the blanks aren't usually filled in with "find Cheers."
