I Hate Thinking In The Mornings

The Ticket played some of a just released Johnny Cash album called American V: A Hundred Highways. It has been described as "captur[ing] a legend of American music reflecting on what he knew and understood was an inevitable death with dignity, sadness, and hope. " And it gave rise to a great discussion: Why does our society want a person to hide when he is no longer on the top of game? Athletes should retire, singers should stop singing, etc. We value youth and energy, it seems, but not old age. And that's wrong.
