“There is nothing new about old age, no matter what advertisers promise. Mental and physical deterioration, financial difficulties, loneliness may be as much a part of old age for some as healthy, productive golden years will be for others.” On this hour of “All Sides,” one author takes a look at how the American culture romanticizes aging.
