It's not easy growing old. On a particuler mission, you wander into the kitchen and then wonder why you're there. You read a book in a comfortable chair and nod off to sleep, dropping the book and losing your place. Then, of course, you can't remember what you've read and end up re-reading a chapter or two.
The current presidential campaign brings you face-to-face with another disturbing reality. What are those campaign songs anyway? With a reasonable interest in music you would think some would be familiar. Well. "Johnny B. Goode" does sound familiar, but you have never heard of "Don't Stop Believing".
We need not go back to "Happy Days Are Here Again" but can't we have something like Louis Armstrong's "It's a Wonderful World?"
