Having just turned 65 I have entered the realm of the Senior Citizen Discount. It has made me ponder the whole issue. My monthly train pass dropped to 122 dollars from 211 dollars. My question is why. I make a healthy salary so why should I deserve this. It's in place to assist more monetary challenged older folks. Why should age play into it. Shouldn't it be a straight economical judgment? Younger poor people need it more. Why should an expensive ticked eat into the already small paycheck. I get a healthy discount when I play GOLF. Like anyone that can afford to play needs that. I can see it when it's used to drive additional business like at restaurants that are trying to attract the earlier crowd to take tables not being used. But as a tool to make living more affordable just because you're old. I think the poor deserve this type of attention. Heck, a lot more than me anyway. What do you think? I know there are other Seniors here. Do you take advantage of them. I'll admit that I have been enjoying them and taking advantage wherever possible. I know I'll be applying for the property tax discount and assessment freeze. Yet there are many younger homeless people.
