The ‘80s sitcom "The Golden Girls" popularized the idea that four older women could get along well as housemates. Now, with one in every three baby boomers single and approaching retirement, many #women  are turning to communal living to ease the burdens of aging.

+Steven Laamanen I do not know the statistics on this, but men drop women and women drop men. You seem to think that it is the women who always abandon men. Relationships are changing. There is no "going back" to the past.

Some older divorced men remarry or get involved with younger women after a divorce. Older women often choose to keep their independence, but some  older women just cannot find good available older men. I feel as if you need to think about this other side of the after-divorce situation. The tossing works both ways, and often it is mutual tossing!

are Americans supposed to feel good that over 75% of the remaining income is eaten up by rising inflation every year, that the wealthy 1% are not paying enough in taxes to begin with, that the ultra rich may still collect federal social security, and a big fat retirement corporate package.  PBS you are dropping the ball on this.

Narrative journalism is the heart blood for telling the human story. Yet when that same story trickles up through the sieve of politics, on it way to Washington, Politicos still find personal reasons to stop federal food stamps. What entitles any one to exercise personal views as a form and function of governance. We are a country of laws, are we not?
