Headline of the Day

Shlomo Maoz: Life expectancy is going up, and that is a problem. People here are refusing to die

  -- Globes

Shlomo Maoz, an economist who ran for a spot in the Likud primaries, said the above during a discussion about budget cuts, the budget deficit, and rising expenses and was talking about the increased expenses as a result of living longer, having to care for parents, children living at home longer, etc. Obviously and deservedly it caused quite a stir.

We should be proud that we have been able to increase life expectancy, by having better health care, by caring better for the environment in the form of less pollution, cleaner water sources and healthier foods with less waste that is not bio-degradable (or at least more of an awareness of the issues), more exercise, etc.
