Dear Sir:

After back-to-back weeks by Mr. John Crowder (September 15, 22 Sideswiping Critique) yammering about whether or not the President is old, I felt compelled to clear up his confusion.

Joe Biden is old! He’s practically a cadaver with the only difference being that a corpse is less likely to say or do something stupid and there is no recorded instance of one sniffing or pawing little girls.

As for Mr. Crowder’s cute but unamusing characterization of a former president as the “orange man of Mar-a-Lago.”  I would point out that obsession with skin and hair color is so Birmingham 1963.  I invite him to look at his calendar and step into the 21st century with the rest of us.
