    Since some members found it acceptable for Trini Lopez to die from Covid 19 at 83, I'm curious what age is the cut-off?

    I don't understand the question. Everyone gets killed by something. Does each potential cause carry an acceptable age? I mean, death by falling off your rocking horse may have an acceptable age no greater than six...

    Acceptable???

    I am in the high risk group and I hate to think of the term acceptable.

    Makes two of us, but I hear a lot of folks saying,"Well it's only dangerous for the old and infirm." Being in both of those groups I wonder what the genXers and millinnials have in mind for us? They certainly talk and act like we're dispensable.

    The cavalier response to the pandemic by some younger people is disgusting. What has happened to society?

    Were posts removed from the RIP thread? I have no idea what prompted this thread.

    But just guessing -- when someone dies in their 40's, 50's, early 60's people say things like "that was too young, what a shame, his/her life was cut short, died before his/her time".

    70's is sort of a grey area, but death at 80's and above is considered "normal" by most people. "That's sad, but at least he/she lived a long, full life."

    First off...RIP Trni...great guitarist. I am 62. I have a bunch of medical issues that would mean I'd most likely be dead within days of getting Covid 19. Meanwhile my wife has worked every day since the crisis happened. My daughter went back to work about two months ago. We eat out. i shop a couple of times a week. I went to see my Granddaughter in a "high risk" state last week.We take precautions as much as possible. I know people who died, some were early 60's...some in their 80's. That's all anyone can do. Some young people do not get it, or don't care. Some folks only think about through politics, both sides. Oh well, protect yourself as you see fit...and teachers should go back to work unless they have an age/medical issue, if they are not essential workers then something is wrong.
