Maybe it's because I myself am an aging baby boomer, but I've noticed (when I watch my free broadcast tv stations) that there are a gazillion companies vying for the contributions of baby boomers who face increasing challenges as their lives wend their way to dependence on others.
Among the products being vigorously marketed is Term Life Insurance. "Now, don't let your magination run wild."...who needs it?
From Pat Boone, to Henry Winkler, to Fred Thompson, to AARP, we've got iconic sales reps relentlessly attempting to catch a piece of Boomer dividends.
Reverse mortgages. Term Life. Cell phones. Medicare and Medicaid attacks. (knee braces, canes, catheters, personal alarms, etc.)
The onslaught is bothersome.
