I just looked up the definition of ghetto, I have been misusing the term my whole life, yes I am old, 50! I always thought it meant the same thing as slum, or an impoverished area. In Webster's dictionary, it says, minority quarter of a city, etc,etc.
So actually a broken down area full of trailer parks could not be referred to as a ghetto if it was it a predominately white area of a city. I would have called such an area a ghetto. As for being called old and over 60, what part of my post were you referring to? Thinking that a million tattoos and body piercings brand a person? I am just being honest on how people that look like that are perceived by most of society that doesn't look like them. Or was it the comment that athletes and rock starts aren't as intelligent as the other professions that earn the money they make? I don't know how anyone could argue that. There are of course exceptions to those blanket statements. Gene Simmons of Kiss is pretty intelligent and a very savy businessman. For every one of him, there are a hundred that killed every one of their brain cells on drugs and alcohol, and probably couldn't balance a check book.
