    ... all elderly Americans have progeny who will read through all the fine print and "choices" and make sure Mom/Grandma/whoever doesn't fall through the cracks.

    For myself, everyone I know with kids assumes that very thing at some level and in some way, shape, or form.

    Not everyone has kids, though.  Knowing I will probably have to figure this all out on my own does not inspire me with confidence.  And every time I take a look at the kinds of things I'll have to think about, I have to fight the urge to pull back and pretend I have all the time in the world.

    So yes, NWTerriD, while I'm not scared shitless yet, I don't want to be.
