I'm 66 years old, and have worked all my life. I have also been married, raised a child and think I have had a fairly well-rounded life. I write several columns for examiner.com, and love to talk about the things that are important to others, and to my community. Politics, education, social welfare and the economy are all things I like to speak out on and in turn, I like hearing what others think.
