Commentary: We owe oldest Americans an apology – CNN.com.

Bob Greene has hit on what has to be one of the most poignant snapshots of how the current economic disaster has impacted the segment of our population who shouldn’t have to endure this mess we find ourselves. Americans who endured the Great Depression and World War II are once again facing the prospect of financial ruin, only this time, they don’t have time or earning power to regain their nest eggs.

All of you in Washington, Wall Street and around the country, I hope you read this piece and repudiate your feeble attempts at rationalizing your greed and malfeasance.
