Thanks for the humor.  It's really good and I think I'll use it in my talks.

If you know of any groups lobbying for AGE research, please let us know.
AGE research would be to STOP the AGEING process; that is the process 
that causes our eyes to develop presbyopia and our skin to become more 
brittle.  There are hundreds of groups that promote vitamins and 
longevity products to extend life a few years, but that is not the same 
as stopping aging. 

Curing the Old Age Disease Society is one group that exists to generate 
funding for research to stop the aging process.  Please list others.
