To slide further off topic - my parents moved to one of those retirement communities outside Phoenix several years ago. *Gated communities are springing up everywhere as people cash in on the inflated value of their homes elsewhere. *Then the old people vote against every local school budget because they feel no connection to any of the area's children. *Some have even seceded from local school districts. *The elderly spend their time playing golf on grass growing in a desert and driving into stores and each other's cars. *Maybe my mother-in-law had the right idea; she moved to the northern border of Vermont. *She'll shiver every time those synopics send massive cold pooling her way, whatever that means, but at least she's pretty well protected from other old people.
