* This is a partial list of wishes on my 90th birthday.
I wish that TV announcers spoke about 40 mph slower and new auto commercials would discontinue showing speeding cars racing on mountain roads in the rain.
That supermarkets stop selling mealy apples.
That flu shots were only for the young and healthy.
I wish for automatic renewal of a driver’s license when the applicant had not received a citation for a moving violation and/or had not been in an accident for the past 50 years.
That sex was not only for the young and foolish.
That Sen. Arlen Specter got a face lift and finally, I wish that the letters editor stops throwing my letters in the wastepaper basket.
