Boston Legal - December 01, 2008

Did you see last night's "Boston Legal?" (December 1, 2008) It included a case on behalf of Betty White's character. They sued the networks for not offering programming for people over 50. It really resonated with me...especially since "Boston Legal" is in its last season. I am so disappointed to see it end. I loved its topical episodes.

I really feel that a lot of the issues I face with getting hired and being treated fairly at work has to do with the media (our #1 educator on social issues).

People 45+ make up over 37% of the US population...http://www.infoplease.com/ipa/A0110384.html. What sense does it make to not reflect our faces in the mainstream media and advertising...except for Viagra and medical problems (Seabond, Depends, etc.)...all in all a depressing reflection of who we are. No wonder we can't get hired!

Oh, and while we're at it...where are the 37.5 Million people living with one or more disability? Let's make some changes!!!!
