Eureka Seniors Downtrodden?
Pretty shameless guest opinion in the Times- Standard this morning from a gal(?) who doesn't think she gets the right kind government assistance. She complains about living in public housing and of landlords not accepting her because she's with Section 8. Not sure of the specifics of Section 8, but it's some government housing assistance thing.
She never mentions MediCare, social security, the Senior Center, Meals on Wheels or any of the other things old folks get. I'd suggest to her she not be looking gift horses in the mouth. I've used various forms of government assistance in my life, too. I don't believe I've ever complained because I didn't get enough.
Also, for what it's worth, pretty much all the seniors I know, maybe even myself(?), seem to be doing ok.
