The 100-Year-Olds’ Club

The Associated Press recently reported that according to the U.S. Census, in the 1950s there were only a few thousand centenarians. Today there are more than 340,000 worldwide and they’re projected to reach nearly 6 million by 2050. And you thought Sun City, Palm Desert was already too crowded! Centenarians are also the fastest growing age segment.

This is one of those good news/bad news stories and it reminds me of the famous Groucho Marx quote: “Please accept my resignation. I don’t want to belong to any club that will accept people like me as a member.”
