Savvy Senior - Is There an Age Limit for Organ Donation?
9/24/2020 4:58:19 PM

Dear Savvy Senior, I never thought about becoming an organ donor until my brother died of kidney failure last year. But at age 78, I would like to know if I’m too old to be a donor, or if they would even use my organs if I were to die from COVID-19. What can you tell me? Potential Donor   Dear Potential, There’s no cutoff age for being an organ donor. Anyone, regardless of age or medical history, can sign up. In fact, there are many people well up into their 80’s that donate. The decision to use your organs is based on health of the organ, not age. So,...

Nick Kotz: Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist with passion for Justice, much beloved friend
9/24/2020 4:54:52 PM

By Marian Wright Edelman FOUNDER AND PRESIDENT EMERITA   I am deeply grateful for the extraordinary life and brilliant reporting of Nick Kotz who died in a tragic accident at the beautiful Virginia farm he and his wonderful wife Mary Lynn and son Jack shared so generously with so many friends. I met Nick in 1967 when he came to Mississippi to cover Senators Joseph Clark, Robert Kennedy, Jacob Javits, and George Murphy’s transforming visit to see first-hand the shocking levels of poverty, hunger, and nearly starving Black children and adults in the Mississippi Delta. I...

Getting away with it is half the fun
9/24/2020 4:20:23 PM

Dr. James L. Snyder   THE PARSONAGE—I must admit I don't get away with very much, and I never have. It's not that I never try. It's just that whenever I try to get away with something, it always backfires. I wish there were a class somewhere entitled, "How You Can Get Away with Anything." I certainly would sign up. But I haven't found it yet. Every time I do something behind the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage's back, she always turns around. I don't know if she has eyes in the back of her head or if it's just women's...

Savvy Senior - Should I buy long-term care insurance?
9/18/2020 9:40:48 AM

Dear Savvy Senior, My wife and I have thought about purchasing a long-term care insurance policy, but we hate the idea of paying expensive monthly premiums for a policy we may never use. Is there a good rule of thumb on who should or shouldn’t buy long-term care insurance? Getting Old   Dear Getting, There are two key factors you need to consider that can help you determine if purchasing a long-term care (LTC) insurance policy is a smart decision for you and your wife. One factor is your financial situation and second is your health history. Currently, around 8...

A remembrance My beloved friend and Civil Rights titan John Lewis
9/18/2020 9:27:34 AM

By Marian Wright Edelman   During Easter weekend in 1960 I took my first airplane ride, from Atlanta, Georgia (where I was a senior at Spelman College) to Raleigh, North Carolina, on a plane chartered by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) at great SCLC organizer Ella Baker’s behest. She was a brilliant, strategic, tough, and compassionate mentor. She invited student leaders from the sit-in protests happening at largely Black colleges across the South to travel to Shaw University to share experiences and see how we could sustain...

Scarcity of raw material still squeezes N95 mask makers
9/18/2020 9:22:53 AM

FRESNO (AP)—White House officials say U.S. hospitals have all the medical supplies needed to battle the deadly virus, but frontline workers, hospital officials and even the Food and Drug Administration say that's not the case. Shortfalls of medical N95 respirators—commonly referred to as N95 masks—and other gear started in March, when the pandemic hit New York. Pressure on the medical supply chain continues today, and in “many ways things have only gotten worse,” the American Medical Association president, Dr. Susan Bailey, said in a recent...

A musical concert or aggravating noise?
9/16/2020 7:26:06 PM

Dr. James L. Snyder   To say the least, and I usually do, this summer has been quite a journey for the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and myself. I can't remember a summer equal to the one we just went through. The fact that we got through it is amazing. We have been staying at home more often than usual, but I'm not complaining. What better night than the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and me sharing whatever we are doing? One night this past week, I turned off the TV; we were getting ready to go to bed when my wife said, "What is that aggravating...

75 years later, Japanese man recalls bitter internment in U.S.
9/9/2020 6:43:13 PM

By Emily Wang TOKYO (AP)—When Japan bombed Pearl Harbor in 1941, the first thing Hidekazu Tamura, a Japanese American living in California, thought was, “I'll be killed at the hands of my fellow Americans.” It wouldn't be the last time he felt that way. At 99, amid commemorations of Wednesday's 75th anniversary of the formal Sept. 2, 1945, surrender ceremony that ended World War II, Tamura has vivid memories of his time locked up with thousands of other Japanese Americans in U.S. internment camps. Torn between two warring nationalities, the experience led...
