Best Reason to Grow Old

Gray Panthers

The Black Panthers are a heroic memory -- their elderly namesakes still stalk the political jungle, determined as ever to strike fear into the hearts of backward bureaucrats and plutocrats everywhere. The local pride, led by co-conveners Charlotte Flynn and Clinton Smith, is currently focused on health care reform and the city's obscure budget process -- and leading the charge for a county health care district. Remember to respect and thank your wise elders; with any luck, one day they'll pass you the torch.
