Letter to the Editor: Geezer goals

I enjoyed Mary Stobie’s accurate fine points of geezer qualifications (How to be a Geezer Part II, July 5 edition). Strict standards, to say the least.

A status I’ve often tried to achieve might be a curmudgeon. A history of notable curmudgeons are worthy of recognition

The first could be Andy Rooney, concluding each episode of 60 Minutes. Often humorous and self-deprecating, his remarks summed up society at large, no doubt with a twinkle in his eye.

Another who comes to mind could be the biting, stinging remarks of Gene Amole. DIA often found itself in the crosshairs from his column in The Rocky Mountain News. Readers absorbed his witticisms while sipping their morning coffee.

One can only imagine the degree of censorship at his reaction to the current administration.

Last, but not least, my final vote belongs to none other than our own Daddy Bruce. His quiet demeanor touched thousands and his generosity and love lives on.

Big shoes to fill.

Adding their wink of Class to Curmudgeon.

Martin Gross,

Wheat Ridge
