Elderly People 

After my talk on Spanish Muslims yesterday, I was approached by a 86-year-old woman from Panama who asked me about the current intensity of fighting in the Donbass and why Russian imperialism had intensified since the beginning of the century. 

Our young journalism majors couldn’t ask such a question to save their lives. 

I love elderly people. Unlike in my country, they don’t all vote for the worst possible candidates. Many do but not 100%. The old lady from the talk is passionately anti-Trump.
