An adult on YouTube? FINALLY!

Dear “geriatric1927”,
I have been following YouTube for quite some time, but have never encountered somebody like you. Thanks so much for sharing your life experience, showing us your face and letting us know that older people exist and have many interesting things to tell. I enjoy your stories, so succinct and well organized, your soft-spoken voice and your thoughtful comments about YouTube, MSM (main-stream-media) and some other issues. Thanks for giving us a sense of history (personal and world history) and a sense of connectivity between past, present and future. With the ascendance of postmodernity and the fragmentation of knowledge, you are that “difference that makes a difference”.
