In my Saturday Los Angeles Times, I read about how China is resolving its elderly problems . If adult children don't take care of their parent, they might be jailed. And if they don't visit them at least once a week, they'll get fined. If it isn't resolved and they continue not to visit them, then you going to jail. Five (5) years in jail for some of the slackers.
Meanwhile, here in North America, we are still throwing our parents into convalescent homes.
This post is a prelude and will prepare us for tomorrow which will be one of the most important posts I've written.
