Super Senior from Brooklyn says:
Why must you call a senior citizen a "Geezer," a disrespectful term? Its sad that seniors, perhaps more than any other group are treated unfairly and get away with it. We have lived longer, done more, paid our dues, fought in wars, celebrated our country, worked, and paid taxes and yet the minute we hit 65 years old, we are looked at like its time to move aside. Adding insult to injury are the insulting terms we are called, like "Geezers."

The Brooklyn Paper thinks they're witty. When in reality they just add to the fact that Brooklyn has some of the crappiest newspapers...
